Shaftesbury Proudly Displaying Its Fairtrade Town Status

Shaftesbury has been a Fairtrade town since 2008. Now residents and visitors are reminded that our town is committed to paying producers in developing nations a reasonable rate for their produce.

We talk with Cllr Derek Beer, who helped arrange the placement of the sign alongside the Royal Chase Roundabout. “We’re buying responsibly and selling responsibly. I’m proud to say the town is part of the fairtrade setup,” said Derek.
