Fairtrade borough status renewed

Warrington has had its fairtrade borough status renewed

The fairtrade steering group, which is made up of enthusiastic volunteers and a council representative took part in the fairtrade foundations pilot to reinvigorate the way that the fairtrade status is renewed.

To do this they had to produce a detailed action plan outlining what they have been doing since their last renewal and what they aim to do over the next two years.

The comments back from the foundation were really positive and the status was successfully renewed. Over the next 2 years the group are aiming to do a number of things including boosting youth involvement, and building on their relationship with the council.
