The Fairtrade Foundation have been in touch and Oxford will be officially renewed as a Fairtrade City on the 23rd February 2009 – right at the start of Fairtrade Fortnight!
We put in our application just before Christmas, and earlier this week heard that the Fairtrade Foundation were delighted with our progress since first gaining Fairtrade City Status in 2004.
We will be celebrating with a special reception at Oxford Town Hall on the 23rd February, where Harriet Lamb from the Fairtrade Foundation will present us with our re-certification. If you’ve been involved in making Oxford a Fairtrade City, as a campaigner, a community group or a local business we would love you invite you along. Drop an e-mail to email@example.com and we’ll get an invite winging it’s way to you
