Llanelli is now officially a ‘Fairtrade zone’ after a very successful Fairtrade Fortnight back in February/March.
Llanelli MP Nia Griffith said:
“This is a huge achievement, but in order to maintain Fairtrade status we need more people to come forward to help run the local Fairtrade group.
“Tara Fisher, the Secretary of Llanelli and District Fairtrade, has done amazing work to promote fair trade locally, but she needs help to sustain the current level of activity.
“The AGM for Llanelli Fairtrade is tonight (Wednesday, May 16) at 7pm in Llanerch Community Hall (Heol Nant-y-Felin, SA15 3PA).
“I would encourage anyone with an interest in fair trade or who wants to get more involved in community activities to go along to Wednesday’s meeting and volunteer your time and skills.
“Llanelli Fairtrade are looking in particular for people with experience of running events, publicity and talking to schools who are available to attend monthly strategy meetings and Fairtrade events in the community.
“That being said, I’m sure they would welcome any help or support that you can offer.
“If you are planning to attend the AGM or aren’t available but would like to get involved, please let Tara Fisher know (email@example.com or 07874264230).”
