Fairtrade supporters walk from Stroud to Nailsworth
FAIRTRADE supporters walked from Stroud to Nailsworth on Saturday.
Members of the Nailsworth and Stroud Fairtrade groups organised the walk to celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight - a national campaign to raise awareness of the Fairtrade industry.
Sue Nicholson, of the Nailsworth group, said: "We called into pubs and cafes along the way for some Fairtrade refreshments and to spread the word about the way Fairtrade provides a hand-up for small independent producers in some of the poorest parts of the world."
Walkers met at Stroud farmers' market for an official send-off from Stroud mayor Amanda Moriarty and followed the cycle path to Nailsworth, where they were greeted by mayor Steve Robinson.
