The Felixstowe Forum is celebrating its 10th birthday next week with a series of events.

The Forum will mark the anniversary with a week long exhibition at Felixstowe Library beginning on November 6.

On the same day a Fairtrade walk will leave from the Trinity Methodist Church at 10.30 am with Fairtrade refreshments and goods on offer afterwards.

Chairman of the Forum, Alan Muchal, said: “We are delighted to celebrate ten years of promoting Fairtrade in the town.

“During this time the Forum and its supporters have achieved Fairtrade Town status for Felixstowe and this has recently been renewed.
