Councillors put Fairtrade on show

BARRY Town Council sets up its stall at the Barry Scouts & Guides annual fete on Saturday in its ongoing efforts to promote Barry as a Fairtrade town.
Councillors Nic and Shirley Hodges represented the council at the event in Romilly Park, for the second consecutive year.
The aim was to reminding people of the importance of Fairtrade and the positive contribution it makes to the world economy.
Ensuring farmers and traders in the third world receive a fair and consistent price for their crops and goods allows them to help plough profits into local health and education schemes that might otherwise not be available.
Cllr Nic Hodges said ”Fairtrade not only is a force for good it provides great products that we all commonly use and with the support of the people of Barry we soon hope that Barry is accepted as a Fairtrade town.”
