Fairtrade at St Andrew’s

Serving customers in old ways and new ways!


Deliveries, foyer stalls, shop appointments

Stalls

Good news! Doors wide open to the fresh air for good ventilation but every Sunday we spread out displays of goods 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 go into the shop if you’d like to see the rest of our stock but keep it to just one or two people at a time for safety reasons.

Please be aware that our delivery service continues and is open to all in the area. Delivery service is now a permanent part of our way of working.

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 available and which you might like to add to orders. This site is growing so please check back soon to see new items and new types of stock.

Appointments to visit the shop

Enjoy a relaxed and safe shop visit by making a personal appointment. Browse on your own or with your partner or friend. The member of staff on duty will stay outside in the foyer while you are in the shop unless you need help to find something. When you are finished shopping go back into the foyer where you can pay by card, cash or cheque. Personal visits to the shop are available by arrangement on all days/evenings except Sundays.
