Relaunch of Hamilton Fairtrade Town

Feb. 21st 2018

The re-launch of Hamilton Fairtrade town, will take place during Fairtrade Fortnight on Tuesday 6th March in St Mary Church, Auchingramont Road, Hamilton.

Hamilton became a Fairtrade Town in 2005. This award was the result of the hard work of Hamilton Fairtrade Town Committee which, at that time, had representatives from South Lanarkshire Council (employees and councillors), local churches and schools and the Co-operative. Since then the committee has persisted in a diminished form but has regularly organised events to promote Fairtrade in Hamilton. Fairtrade is important.

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. It allows them to improve and have more control over their lives. The injustices of usual trading practices are challenged.
