International Women’s Day

Friday 8th March fell in Fairtrade Fortnight but was also International Women’s Day.

Invited by the International Sub-Committee of the Bedfordshire County Federation of Women’s Institutes we ran a stall at their meeting in Flitwick Cricket Club. The hall was packed so the stall had to be crammed into a corner but we were quickly surrounded by eager customers.

After selling we could relax and listen to a most interesting talk given by staff members of Associated Country Women of the World, an organisation with principles very much in tune with the ethics and aims of fair trade.
