At the invitation of the FIG Tree, group members joined Meg (Megumi) Morita, a visitor from Japan’s Third Fair Trade Town, on a guided walk around parts of the Lancaster Slave/ Fairtrade Trail. Christopher Tinmouth led the group and gave an excellent commentary on the various sites visited. The walk took in Craft Aid, the first “Fair Trade only” shop in Lancaster. An enjoyable lunch and discussion took place at the historic Sun Hotel, an old coaching inn in the 1700s, where merchants and captains would meet up to trade. A slave ship called “The Africa” was sold here.
