A Fair Trading Showcase event was staged in Watnall by Traidcraft, an international organisation which fights poverty through trade. The Greasley and District Traidcraft team members manned stalls selling cards, gifts, confectionary and stationery as well as handcrafted goods made by people in developing countries. Co-ordinated by retired teachers Janet Hedderly and Katrine Hockenhull, the 21st anniversary event managed to sell goods to the value of £1,489, profits of which will go to Christian Aid.
