Fairtrade Motion, Town Hall

February 8th, 2011 by Sally Leave a reply »

The Town Council will be voting this Wednesday 9th February at 7pm on the following motion to support Witney gaining Fairtrade status.

“Witney Town Council supports the principles of Fair Trade, because it believes all farmers deserve a fair price for their produce, in developing countries as well as in Witney. The Town Council will help and encourage the Witney Area Fair Trade Action Group WAFTAG to achieve and promote Fairtrade status for the town of Witney, provided no expenditure is directly required of the Council. Fairtrade products will be offered as a choice wherever food and drink are served by the Town Council. Details of the support will be determined in discussions between the Council and WAFTAG starting with the meeting agreed by the General Purposes committee at their meeting of 24 January 2011.”
