ENVIRONMENT-CONSCIOUS residents in Backwell have been doing their bit for the cause by going along to a Fairtrade café in the village.

Held every month, the café gives people the chance to discuss green issues among others with similar interests.

The café also includes a shop that allows people to refill their bottles with products including environmentally-friendly cleaning agents.

Café organiser Jill Jones said: "The café was set up after Al Gore's film, An Inconvenient Truth, was shown in Backwell.

"A group of us got together to set up the café as a place where people can swap ideas and discuss green issues."

The café and shop has been running in the village for two years now and is held at the parish hall on the second Saturday of the month, not including August.
