A Traidcraft stall is held after the morning service on the first Sunday of every month (except January at 11.15 and lasts about one hour). A wide variety of fair trade groceries, chocolate, sweets, cards and crafts is available together with the catalogue from which items may be ordered. Before Christmas we have Advent Calendars, cards, small gifts and stocking fillers; before Easter there Easter Eggs and cards. We highlight specific items with occasional additional displays, such as our Focus on Baking. The small income derived from sales is donated to St John’s and to Traidcraft Exchange, Traidcraft’s charity. Enquiries to Katie Knapton: 01223 212089, firstname.lastname@example.org
