Campaigners celebrate as town retains Fairtrade status

By timesecholife on in All News, Featured News

UTTOXETER has retained its Fairtrade Town status for another two years after the initial 12 months proved to be a huge success.

The further accreditation by the Fairtrade Foundation was announced at a coffee morning organised by Town Mayor Alison Trenery last week.

She said: “I am delighted the town has been successful in its application for re-approval.

“It’s a tribute to the tremendous work undertaken by the steering group and its supporters in the twelve months since Uttoxeter first became a Fairtrade Town.

“They have been backed by the people of Uttoxeter, the town council, Uttoxeter churches, small businesses and schools, and by large businesses like Tesco, Waitrose, Asda and Lidl.

“The support has paid off and Uttoxeter will now be a Fairtrade Town until 2020.”

The mayors Fairtrade coffee morning is a flagship event for Fairtrade Fortnight in Uttoxeter and followed a host of information activities including displays at the town hall, library and St Mary’s Church as well as information events at supermarkets.
