DATCHWORTH'S BID TO BECOME A FAIR TRADE VILLAGE

There is a small group of people who are interested in making Datchworth a Fairtrade village. They are having an open meeting at the Datchworth Village Hall on Monday 17th January at 8pm for anyone who’s interested to find out more.

There’s more info on the Datchworth website – www.datchworth.info
