We have had two stunning events during this
Fairtrade Festival. 180 students from all the Schools and Colleges in Burgess
Hill put on a Fairtade Variety show which was fantastic and played to a full
College hall and on Sunday evening George Alagiah hosted a Fairtrade debate with
local politicians which was very stimulating and interesting. About 150 people
turned up - who said public meetings were dead.
We are now on the final run in to our big festival
weekend with some of the biggest names in Acoustic music coming to the Martlets
Hall on Friday and Sunday and a really popular ceilidh band on Saturday
