Steering Group Meeting

The Steering Group has its first meeting of the year in the library with representation from the Community Council, Prestonpans Infant School Parent Council, the Small World shop and Prestongrange Church.

It would be great to have representation from local businesses so we will shortly be visiting local companies and explaining what they could do to support Fairtrade in Prestonpans.

Our Fairtrade Town status requires to be renewed in October 2012 and thereafter every two years. We really hope local organisations will make a commitment to support Fairtrade by either:

  • Pledging to use Fairtrade products at their meetings, or on their premises (e.g. tea, sugar, biscuits, kitchen roll or handwash).
  • Selling at least four Fairtrade product ranges in their shop
  • Serving at least two Fairtrade product ranges in their cafe or restaurant; or
  • Joining the Steering Group, which meets 4 times per year

Please let us know how you are supporting Fairtrade in Prestonpans - and if we can help you.
