It is with huge pride and joy that the Trowbridge Fairtrade Group are pleased to announce that Trowbridge has been awarded their renewal of Fairtrade Town / Community status. It is fortuitous that 2024 sees the 30th anniversary of the fair trade mark in the United Kingdom so it’s a double celebration. Trowbridge first became a Fairtrade town back in 2009.
Over the last 4 years (since the previous renewal) the Group has worked hard on promoting Fairtrade within the town. As a group they have been at the Weavers market, in schools, talked to community organisations, churches, held coffee mornings, participated in Trowbridge Town events such as the Gardens for the Kings Coronation and taken part in many more activities. Additionally, the Town Council has regularly renewed its commitment to its principles of Fairtrade and the use of Fairtrade products in all its venues.
