Fairtrade Maidstone was launched today following the award by the Fairtrade Foundation of Fairtrade status for the Borough. The steering committee presented the Mayor with the certificate at an event in the Town Hall attended by local councillors, press, schools and businesses. I gave a bit of speech as chair of the committee and we drank loadsa coffee.
Lots of work done to get FT status: street stalls, talks, a picnic for 200 kids etc. Plenty more work planned for 2008! First job was to get the website up and working.
