Traidcraft fillip for Hastings Fairtrade

The steering group set up to plot Hastings’ route to Fairtrade status received a fillip when it held its first meeting, with news that Traidcraft, the ethical and fairtrade supplier, will be holding a roadshow here in late January. HOT’s Nick Terdre reports.

Steering Hastings to Fairtrade status

A steering committee has been established to lead Hastings and St Leonards’ charge towards becoming a Fairtrade town. The mobilisation of Fairtrade forces in the town should be reflected in higher participation in next year’s, Fairtrade Fortnight, which will have a campaigning focus on bananas. HOT’s Nick Terdre reports.
