Former Mayor Rajinder Mann and Mayoress Mayor John John Gallagher showcase Fairtrade cotton bunting beautifully outside Ealing’s Town Hall – an event organised by Ealing Fairtrade and Ealing Council.   See how it was reported by Ealing Today’s (link below).

Over 300 pieces of individually decorated Fairtrade cotton bunting were produced in Ealing.  Contributors included Ellen Wilkinson School for Girls, St Benedicts School, St Stephens Church, Ealing Council employees at Perceval House, Ealing Central, Acton and Northolt Libraries and Ealing Broadway Centre shoppers who joined a public bunting-making session outside Tesco on March 13th.

100 Westminster MPs (including Ealing North’s Stephen Pound) also decorated their own pieces of Fairtrade cotton.

On 6 April the Ealing Fairtrade Group supported by Jo Mortensen of Ealing Council invited the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and local MP to help show off Fairtrade cotton bunting.  The designs came from school, library and public events with people of all ages taking part.  Children especially had a very creative time and it was also popular with families.  The team were delighted to have Aruna Anand, CEO of the Network of Asian Fairtrade Producers, accompanied by Fairtrade London’s Campaigns Manager Malcolm Clark, present and discuss relevant issues with the Ealing Fairtrade Group members.
