Big Brew for Fair Trade Fortnight

Steve Brine dropped into Oliver's Battery on Saturday 4th March as he supported the Big Brew, one of many events marking Fair Trade Fortnight.

The Big Brew was held at St Mark's Church, with the first week of Fair Trade Fortnight in Winchester holding several events, including pancakes at the United Church on Tuesday, tea with the Mayor at Abbey House on Friday, a Fairtrade Fashion Show organised by Winchester University students on Saturday, and a number of 'Big Brews' supporting the work of Traidcraft in fighting poverty in the developing world through trade.

Steve said: "Buying items bearing the Fairtrade Mark guarantees that farmers and producers receive a fair price, and I was delighted to take young Emily and William along so they can learn about Fair Trade.

"Rosemary Dunhill is well known to say many people across our city, and has a really strong group here in Winchester. I congratulate her for all her sterling work, and many thanks to St Mark's for holding such a lovely event."
