The business of the meeting will take place from 6.00pm for a maximum of half an hour. Mike Gidney will speak at 6.30 for about half an hour on his vision of the future of Fairtrade and the role of FT towns, universities, colleges, schools and faith groups.  There will then be half an hour for questions and comments before sharing a glass of FT wine or juice together.
