Holme sweet Holme

Fairtrade Holme Valley enjoyed the sweet taste of success as their new website was launched at a special event on 27th February.  Held at the town’s Soul Kitchen, the web launch was attended by supporters from across the valley.  The event also crossed the political divide with attendance from both Linda McAvan MEP and Jason McCartney MP.

Helen Robinson, Chair of the Fairtrade Group, talked everyone through the new site and spoke of the achievements that have been made in the promotion of Fairtrade in the valley in the past few years.  There has been great success in engaging local businesses and this was evident in Holmfirth during Fairtrade Fortnight when many of the businesses displayed Fairtrade posters.  Some even displayed inflatable Fairtrade bananas, one of which mysteriously disappeared, but following wide media coverage across the Holme Valley was soon recovered.
