Fairtrade Town

Shock news: free local papers have some value! Last week I found out about Fairtrade for Woodbridge - a campaign raising awareness of Fairtrade locally.

For the first time ever, I've emailed my local councillor this week. Sad to say he wasn't exactly supportive of the campaign. His response was in parts ill-informed, and elsewhere demonstrated the deep divide between his take on the world and mine. (Still, at least he seemed to be sticking to the party line.)

Should Woodbridge become a Fairtrade Town? That's the goal of the campaign, and I've yet to make my mind up. But if it helps to correct the misinformation I came across earlier in the week then surely it's a good thing.
