Support Fairtrade

How you can get involved with promoting Fairtrade locally.

Rushmoor was awarded Fairtrade borough status in 2008 Displays a larger version of this image in a new browser windowWe have been supporting Fairtrade since 2003 and only serve Fairtrade products at meetings and events.

In 2008, the Fairtrade Foundation awarded us Fairtrade borough status. This recognises the work carried out by the council and other organisations to increase support for Fairtrade and the availability of Fairtrade products locally in Aldershot and Farnborough.

There are more than 500 Fairtrade communities, boroughs and towns in the UK.

Rushmoor Fairtrade Steering Group

The group meets several times a year to organise fun Fairtrade events, promote Fairtrade to local businesses and residents, give talks and ensure that Rushmoor maintains its Fairtrade borough status.

Members include volunteers from schools, faith groups, local businesses, campaigning groups, councillors, council officers and individuals.
