We've been selling Traidcraft in the parish since 1984 and after a gentle start sales have grown so much that Elaine, the Fairtrader for the last 25 years, has been top Fairtrader in the whole country twice. For many years we've held the second highest seller position. For 2015 we are Top seller.


We have a stall in the coffee area of St Anne's, where goods can be purchased whenever the church is open, usually 10am-2pm except for Monday. There's always most of the food and beverages and a range of craft products.

In addition we supply Traidcraft on a sale/return basis for one off events in churches, schools, offices etc and have several regulars who buy for monthly stalls in their own churches and communities. Elaine also gives talks to and runs workshops for groups of all ages. She can be contacted on 01299 400617 or email: Elaine.

The highlight of the year is the Traidcraft Christmas Fair, held in St Anne's on the first Saturday after the autumn term half term holiday. This year it's 3rd November 2018 from 10am-4pm. This is now a well established part of the Bewdley calendar and attracts a big crowd from Bewdley and further afield. It's a great opportunity to do lots of Christmas shopping in a relaxed way, to pick up unusual things and to know you're helping some of the poorest of the world's poor to help themselves, by paying a fair price for what they have made or grown.
