Christmas Fair and Winter Festival

This year the Winter Hay Festival will be taking place over the weekend of 23rd to 25th November.
As part of the festivities, Fairtrade Hay will be having their Christmas Fair in the Buttermarket on Saturday 24th November. Hot drinks and cakes will be provided this year by Hay, Brecon and Talgarth Sanctuary for Refugees.
Jump4Timbuktu will be displaying jewellery and leatherwork, and there will be crafts from the Wati Collective from Columbia, food from Palestine's Zaytoun, and textiles and children's gifts from Dragon's Garden.

This year the Fairtrade Hay group are also seeking to renew Hay's status as a Fairtrade Town, which depends on the number of outlets in the town that sell Fairtrade goods and food. As part of this effort, they are trying to persuade more local shops to stock Fairtrade products.

Another Successful Christmas Fair

This year's Fairtrade Christmas Fair went well.
There are two videos on the Fairtrade Hay Facebook page, one showing the official opening of the Fair by George the Town Crier, and a brief speech by the Mayor, and the other saying farewell to Jo Eliot, who has been a powerhouse of enthusiasm on the committee of Fairtrade Hay for several years. She's moving on to pastures new, and will be missed in Hay.
However, new and enthusiastic members have joined the committee, so the work will continue to encourage Hay to embrace Fairtrade products.
