The fairly-traded goods sold in the Fair Trade shop come from all around the world. As well as food, there are unusual crafted items, baskets and bags, jewellery, scarves and some beautiful cards. People are often surprised at the variety of goods and at their reasonable price
Opening times: Monday to Thursday 10.00am to 2.00pm
We are generally closed during school holidays – please check Diary
Fair trade not only means that producers have received a fair price for their goods, but also that they will have good working conditions, and have been treated well by purchasers, given some advance payments and in some cases help and advice on marketing practices
Within a fairly-traded price there is also a social premium which helps to improve facilities within a community.
In order to keep our overheads as low as possible, we accept cash or cheques for purchases, but not credit or debit cards .

In addition to all these benefits of fairly-traded goods, we give away any profit we make in the fair-trade shop.
Last year we were able to support projects in Bangladesh, Tanzania, Rwanda, amongst others, by donations totalling over £5000. So a big thank you to all our customers
The Fairtrade shop is staffed for the same hours that the cafe is open.
That’s Monday to Thursday 10.00am to 2.00pm
During school holidays we’re sometimes closed – please check with the office if in doubt
We are able to visit and encourage other churches and groups interested in Fair Trade. Please contact the Parish Office to find out more.
