A much loved pop-up cafe will return to a town for a limited time ahead of a fairtrade week.
On Saturday, February 29 from 10.15am until 12.15pm, in Beccles Library, the Beccles Fairtrade Town Steering group will host a pop-up café for the fourth year running.
This year the theme is once again chocolate, and the event will be an opportunity to taste delicious products while raising awareness of cocoa farmers who are often exploited and badly paid.
The pop-up café "welcomes everyone, and refreshments will be available for a donation" according to its organisers.
There will be activities for children including a chocolate trail organised by Hilary Pyburn and a Fairtrade themed Lego club organised by David Brambley-Crawshaw.
