Marlborough successfully renews Fairtrade status

Marlborough will be a registered Fairtrade town for the next two years.

The Marlborough Fairtrade Group heard the news from the national foundation after a report on the activities in the town since it won Fairtrade status last year.

The Fairtrade Foundation were particularly impressed with the Group's engagement with key members of the community: "It is great to see that you have got so much media  coverage from BBC Radio Wiltshire, Marlborough New Online and the Wiltshire Gazette and Herald."

"You have a diverse membership on the steering group including Church representatives, schools, Town Council, retailers and Marlborough Brandt Group, representing a wide range of the community.  It was a pleasure to see your fantastic plaque awards being handed to retailers by you and the Town Mayor."

Congratulating members of the Marlborough Fairtrade Group, its chair, Allison Burden, singled out in particular St John’s School which has achieved ‘Fairaware’ status, the Churches which are serving Fairtrade products at their meetings, the retailers and in particular Nick Helps Manager of the local branch of Tesco, and the crucial support from the Town Council, in particular the Mayor Noel Barrett-Morton.
