A SHOP which has been held each year for more than a decade will not go ahead this Christmas due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Fairtrade Christmas shop has been a regular event at the Friends Meeting House in Malton.

Janice Gwilliam, from the group, said: “Every thing is upside down this year, so sadly there will be no Fairtrade Christmas shop this year.

“However, look out for the posters which should be around Malton and Norton in the next few weeks, ask for a copy of our directory giving details of where to shop Fairtrade locally or online, phone 07985 365161 or visit our website maltonandnortonfairtrade.org

“We hope we will be back next year.”
