Petersfield is a Fair Trade townPetersfield Fairtrade Group

The Petersfield Fairtrade Group organise stalls at church meetings, and hold a special event during Fairtrade Fortnight each year. This is to raise awareness of the importance of buying Fairtrade goods to help some of the poorest in the world. We try to involve local schools in these events.   The group consists of  Marie-Claire Greening, Mary Morgan, Sharon Skrzypczak, Olivia Tottle and Debbie Williams.

Fairtrade Fortnight 2018 runs from 26 February to 11 March

On your marks, get set, BAKE!

The Petersfield Fairtrade Group is inviting local residents to get baking for the Great Petersfield Fairtrade Bake Off to mark Fairtrade Fortnight (26 February – 12 March).

Every entry must contain a minimum of two ingredients that bear the Fairtrade mark. This mark shows that the product has met internationally recognized Fairtrade standards to ensure that the farmers and workers involved in growing and supplying it have been treated fairly.

Click to download an entry formEntry forms for the Bake Off will be available from Petersfield library, local schools and churches and can be downloaded from the link below.. There will be prizes for the best cake(s) in each of four age categories (Infant: up to and including Year 2; Junior: Year 3 to 6; Secondary: Year 7 to 13; and Adult: age 18 and above).

All entries are to be submitted between 11.00am and 12.00 noon on Saturday 10 March at the Physic Garden, High Street, Petersfield, where they will be judged. Entrants will be able to collect their cakes later in the day and winners will be invited to stay to receive their prizes from the Town Mayor, Jamie Matthews.
