Airdrie is now a Fairtrade Town!

 

Many congratulations to Airdrie in North Lanarkshire for securing Fairtrade Town status!

 

The Fairtrade Airdrie Steering Group has been very active in the past year: They have hosted a visit from two Fairtrade Cocoa farmers from Ghana, wrote to local betting shops, solicitors, banks and decorators to ask if they already serve Fair Trade tea and coffee, took part in the Airdrie Wee Fair day where they had a display of information, and met with their local MP to discuss how best to engage with local supermarkets. During Fairtrade Fortnight this year, the group displayed a new banner at the local supermarket and they also had a Fair Trade stall at the store.
