Penistone Town renews Fairtrade status

Fairtrade supporters in Penistone are celebrating a renewal of the town’s Fairtrade Town by going bananas.

The theme of Fairtrade Fortnight later this year will be “Make Bananas Fair”, with competitions, cooking, quizzes and tasters.

They are also planning their annual chocolate give-away.

Look on the High Street on the mornings of Thursday February 27 and March 6, with chocolate given by Co-op.

The town was granted Fair Trade status in 2007 but has to reapply every four years.

Fairtrade is important to our community!
