News: Oasis Coffee Shop Say Cheers to Fairtrade

Oasis The Coffee House, 189 Leigh Road have long been supporters of Fairtrade in our town. They are now delighted to announce their new Bean to Cup Coffee Machine is now entirely serving Fairtrade certified hot beverages.

Not only are all the popular styles of fresh coffee available but also Fairtrade Hot Chocolate and the Tea.
