Launch of Fairtrade directory

It is still Stroud Food and Drink Festival (see here) and as part of it on Saturday it was the launch at the Farmers Market of the town’s new Fairtrade Directory - infact it is for both Stroud and Nailsworth - the photo is of Mayor Andy Reed handing the new directory out.

Back in 2002 I was a member of the Nailsworth Fairtrade towns group which helped get them registered in the first place - it was a bit of a race between Nailsworth and Stroud - Nailsworth just got in first - see my old press release here - we should also note that Wotton, Cam and Dursley are also fairtrade towns - and last year Painswick joined the list - see list of 11 fairtrade towns in Glos here.

The directory is not online yet but some of the listings in the old 2006 version can be found here.
