Fingers crossed for our application to get Maidstone 'Fairtrade Borough' status. We sent the second application off today having been turned down last year for not having enough churches and schools on board and not having enough media coverage.
Well, we have just about every school in Maidstone (except the Girl's Gammar which I have written to). Half of the churches are supporting it. We did a picnic with 200 kids in the summer and loads of stalls throughout the year and I spoke about FT at Maidstone's Peace One Day festival which was full of teenagers.
Let's hope we are successful this time round. It does feel that we have done as much as we can.
