Fairtrade Mossley is now on the map

PEOPLE VISITING or travelling through Mossley will now know it is a ‘Fairtrade Town’ thanks to new signs added to two of the town’s boundaries.

One is situated on Mossley Road approaching from Ashton and the other on Manchester Road entering from Greenfield.

Although Mossley has been a Fairtrade Town since 2011 the process of getting the signs erected has taken some time and is another significant step on their Fairtrade Journey.

Janet Davies, Fairtrade campaigner, said: “Everyone in Mossley can be involved in Mossley’s Fairtrade journey.

“Schools and businesses, shops and cafes, church, community and voluntary groups all took part in Fairtrade Fortnight 2017 events.

“As consumers we have an important role to play to improve the situation for producers across the world.

“We are using our power as a community to make trade work for communities in developing countries.”

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. Becoming a Fairtrade Town means that the community makes a stand against poverty by supporting Fairtrade.
