    Flap JackThis month’s new products:  we now have Traidcraft Oaty flapjacks in stock – £1.65 for a pack of 5.

    Back in stock are Milk Chocolate Peanuts – 200g for £2.Chocolate Peanuts

    If you’re visiting the Llangollen Eisteddfod next week do pop in to visit us – we’re usually sited next to the Soroptomists where you can have a sit-down & a cuppa.

    We’ll also have a stall at the Betws-y-Coed Celtic Summer Fayre from 17 – 21 July.  It’s the first time this event has been held so please support it if you’re in the area.

    Just Trading, Scotland, is challenging churches & communities to sell 90 x 1k bags of rice from Malawi because this is how much a Malawian farmer has to sell to send 1 child to school for a year.  Could this be a Harvest project for your church or school?  Let me know if you’re interested or have a look at the website: www.justtradingscotland.co.uk – harvest liturgy, posters, an information pack & power point presentation also available.

    Thanks to everyone who sponsored John and me to take the Snowdon Challenge on 6 June.  We’ve now raised an amazing £1406 for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

    Kind regards

    This month’s deliveries to St Asaph will be on 11th & 25th June – 5pm in the Cathedral car park.  Please let me know in good time if you want to exchange goods on either date (especially on 11th as it’s a busy week).

    I’ll also be in St Asaph on Sunday, 21 June from around 12 noon running a FT stall in the Cathedral at the Diocesan Conference.  I’ll have some room in the car for other goods if this is a more convenient date & time for anyone.

    olivesspagThis month’s new goods are jars of Palestinian black & green olives at £4 & £3 respectively.  If you think they’ll sell on your stall please let me know & I’ll include some with your next order.

    This month’s special offer:  Traidcraft Spaghetti – down from £1 to only 80p per 500g pack.

    Hope you’re all enjoying this spell of fine weather.  John & I are walking up Snowdon next Sunday in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care so are hoping it’s not too hot for us (& hoping the café on top is now open)!

    cornflakesI was asked to stock this brand of cornflakes because they’re organic, low in fat, vegan and gluten free.  Unfortunately, they don’t carry the Fair Trade Mark but are produced by the Whole Earth company and are proving to be a very popular line at £1.99 a box.  Let me know if you’d like me to include a box in your next order.gloves

    Fair Trade rubber gloves have now come back into stock at £1.10 a pair.  Look out for them in your boxes over the coming weeks.
