A Steering Group Meeting with a difference – November 26th, 2015

Our last meeting of the Brighton and Hove Fair Trade Steering Group was a joint meeting at the Bevy pub. To involve more people in Fair Trade we joined up with other like-minded groups, in this case the Co-operative Party. The first half of the meeting we heard from Warren and Helen, two people who were heavily involved in setting up the Bevy, the country’s only co-operative pub on an estate. The second half of the meeting was an update from the Fair Trade Steering Group and a chance for some new people to get involved. We reviewed Brighton Fashion Week, a recent brainstorming meeting with the Council, progress on our school uniforms project, and looking ahead to Fair Trade Fortnight 2016 – the Big Breakfast.
