Join Us for a Wine and Cheese Evening with a Difference

Wine and Cheese Evening, Pyle Co-op Coffee Bar, Oct 19th 7pm-9.30pm. (Entry £4.00).
Bridgend Borough Fair Trade Group are collaborating with partners in the Co-operative store at Pyle to offer guests a great evening out.

As well as sampling the Co-op’s wide-range of Fairtrade wine and range of cheese, there’ll also be a quiz, and a short film screening by community arts project, Valley and Vale (V&V), about their award winning work with the Ethiopian NGO, the Gemini Trust and the development of ‘Gem Art’.
The event is also being held to recognise and celebrate Bridgend County’s renewal of Fairtrade status, help establish our forthcoming action plan and fundraise for the work of charity Sustainable Wales. The Deputy Mayor of Bridgend and her consort will be in attendance.
“This is a fun event but with an important message. Wales was officially recognised as the world’s first Fairtrade nation in 2008. To maintain this status we need all boroughs to incrementally improve the sale and knowledge of Fairtrade across their area. Porthcawl Town has just retained its FT status. However, Maesteg and Pencoed are yet to achieve this. The Bridgend Fairtrade Partnership believes that it is important that they do and are prepared to offer assistance.” said Chairperson Margaret Minhinnick.
