Fairtrade at St Andrew’s

Serving customers in new ways at this challenging time!


Deliveries, shop appointments, stalls.

Stalls

Good news! There’ll be a strict one way system and doors wide open to the fresh air for good ventilation but every Sunday starting 6th June 2021 we’ll be holding a stall in the church centre foyer between 10.30 and 11.30. This makes it possible to have a much bigger range of goods on display and, unlike outdoor stalls we won’t have to cancel because of rain or high winds. Cash, cheques and cards accepted. Come and see lots of new stock as well as your old favourites.

Please be aware that our delivery service is not affected by this change plus appointments for personal visits to the shop remain available on all days/evenings except Sundays.

Delivery Service

Free and contactless delivery service in Bedford and the surrounding area. Day and time of delivery will be arranged with you by our volunteer drivers. Order anything from the Traidcraft catalogue, from our grocery list, from the Companions Real Bread list or indeed anything you can remember seeing in our shop.

This site lets you browse some of the things we have in great variety in the shop and sourced from various fair trade suppliers in addition to Traidcraft. This is not an online shop just a way to see some of the things we have in stock and which you might like to add to orders. This site is growing so please check back soon to see new pages and items.

How to order goods for delivery

Phone Brenda Mayoh our buyer and delivery service organiser on 01234 268574 and dictate your order or email your order to fairtrade@standrewsbedford.org Please give your name, address and contact telephone number + as many details of the item as possible such as code (if there is one), name of item or a description, size if ordering things such as socks, quantity and price.

Payments for deliveries received may be made by BACS. The shop account is with the NatWest Bank, account name Fairtrade at St Andrews Sort Code 600213 Account Number 63196115 Use your surname and initial as the reference. Please don’t pay until requested to do so.

Alternatively, with your agreement, we will email you an invoice and you will be able to pay safely and easily by credit or debit card via a link in the email. Smartphone users may prefer to opt to receive a payment link by text. If none of these are possible for you, don’t worry as we’ll organise a payment method to suit you.

Appointments to visit the shop

Our small shop can’t open in the normal way at present but we are offering you the opportunity to shop safely by making appointments to visit. Browse on your own or, for example, with your partner, or child, or bubble member. The member of staff on duty will stay outside in the foyer while you are in the shop. Once you have placed anything you wish to buy in the basket provided you then return to the foyer where you can pay by card, cash or cheque.
