Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : July 30 2008
INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, July 31, 2008 11 Fair way to trade People such as this Sri Lankan tea worker will benefit from the fair trade fair. FAIR trade products from around the world will be on display at a fair in Concord West on Saturday. The Concord Community Anglican Church will host the event as part of its open week. It will be held at the Holy Trinity Church, corner of Concord Rd and Victoria Ave from 11am to 3pm. Tribes and Nations, a fair trade company based in Lawson in the Blue Mountains, is one of the companies whose products will be on display. The company sells goods including coffee beans from Ethiopia, ostrich egg jewellery from South Africa and hand-loomed cottons from Sri Lanka. Owners Mignonne and Grant Murray worked as missionaries in Tanzania for five years before returning to Australia and establishing Tribes and Nations. Ms Murray said that by setting up the fair trade company, they were able to maintain a connection with their lives in Tanzania. ''Poverty was something that really struck us, especially the obviousness and the difficulty of getting out of it,'' she said. ''In coming back to Australia, we thought what are we going to do, how can we still be connected to life over there from here?'' She said the fair trade movement was relatively new in Australia compared with countries such as Britain. Fair trade products support the poor in developing countries such as Sri Lanka and Ghana, who are paid a reasonable wage in return for their skills or labour. NEWS 409 might stop at Summer Hill BUS 409 may be on its way back to Summer Hill, with Ashfield Council calling upon the State Transit Authority to immediately restore that section of the route. The council also supports a self-funding shuttle bus that will provide the elderly and immobile with transport, connect nursing homes to other community facilities, and allow access to shops and railway stations. The council is waiting on a feasibility study into the shuttle. A State Transit spokesman has pre- viously said the authority wanted to cut the Summer Hill diversion of the route ''due to very low patronage'' and that people could take a train from Ashfield to Summer Hill.
