and other Fairtrade celebrations
There can’t be too many readers of KesMail
– can there? – who don’t know that Keswick
is a pretty amazing place for Fairtrade
. ‘Fairtrade in Keswick
,’ said one visitor (and
that was three years ago), ‘you can’t miss it!
’ It’s even more unmissable now! For our
visitors it is in the 70 or so guest houses and hostels, 60 self-catering properties, some but
not many hotels (yet), nearly 3 dozen cafés, restaurants, coffee and tea shops, and galleries that they find it. It is also in many of our shops, and now in two pubs and one off-license, too!
To celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight, 2008 (25th February to 9th March)
, the local
campaign group – active as ever – is organising several events. One of these will be an
even bigger version of last year’s ‘COFFEE MARATHON’
. As this article is being
written we are planning it. It will involve as many
people as possible visiting as many
of the participating tea and coffee shops, hotels, cafés, and restaurants as their caffeine quota
will allow them – all in a fortnight! Think of it as a kind of long, drawn out ‘Fairtrade
– taken at your own pace.
so long as it is FAIRTRADE
Also in Fairtrade Fortnight
in Keswick there will be chance to hear Harriet Lamb
Director of the Fairtrade Foundation
. Harriet will be speaking at Words by the Water
at 7.30, 4th March on Fighting Fairtrade Battles
. Tickets are on sale at Theatre by the
now. Copies of Harriet’s book, Fighting the Banana Wars and Other Fairtrade
will be on sale during the festival. And we shall also carry stocks afterwards.
We have other events in the pipeline – including a working breakfast
, followed by a reception
, with Harriet Lamb on 5th March.
By the end of Fairtrade Fortnight
everyone ought to be able to say: ‘Fairtrade Fortnight
in Keswick – you couldn’t miss it!
