The Selkirk Fairtrade Group was delighted to hear last week that their application to renew the town’s Fairtrade Town status for a further two years has been accepted by the Fairtrade Foundation. In her letter of acceptance, Rachael Sweet, the Fairtrade Foundation’s Communities Campaign Officer, said ‘Congratulations to you and your group for successfully renewing Fairtrade Town status for Selkirk. It is clear that a lot of time and energy has been put in to make Fairtrade a part of the community so we would like to pass on our congratulations and say thank you to everyone who has been involved.
Looking to the future, you have many goals that are definitely achievable and exciting! Congratulations again and best wishes with your continued campaigning!’
We hope you will all continue to support Fairtrade in Selkirk starting at Scott’s Selkirk on Saturday 3 October. There will be a Fairtrade stall in the Parish Church coffee shop, and Fairtrade activities and refreshments at Wasps Artists Studios.
