Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - NEWS -

The 10th an­nual Fairer World Fair, or­gan­ised by Dum­fries Fair­trade Group, will be held to­mor­row.

The pop­u­lar event will take place in St Ge­orge’s Church Hall, Ge­orge Street, Dum­fries, from 10am to 2pm.

Group chair­man Rose­mary Buw­ert said:“We have come a long way since the first Fairer World Fair in 2009, and we have a lot to cel­e­brate.

“So many farm­ers and pro­duc­ers in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries have ben­e­fit­ted from Fair­trade, and it is won­der­ful to be part of such a life-chang­ing, world­wide cam­paign.

“It’s also, of course a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to make a start on your Christ­mas shop­ping, and you can be sure that the peo­ple be­hind the prod­ucts have re­ceived fair pay­ment for their work and pro­duce.”

There will also be a dis­play about the work of Wat­eraid and in­for­ma­tion about the cam­paign for pro­mot­ing Fair­trade in the re­gion.
