NOTTINGHAMSHIRE is aiming become a Fairtrade county with help from the Co-operative Group.
The society is supporting organisations such as Rushcliffe Borough Council, which endorsed its Fairtrade credentials by signing the Nottinghamshire Fairtrade Pledge.
The Mayor of Rushcliffe, Councillor Bryan Tansley (right), signed the document, committing the council to buying and promoting Fairtrade, during Fairtrade Fortnight. Samples of Fairtrade products were supplied by the Co-operative Group.
