We won’t be closed completely over the school summer holidays, but we will be taking our own holidays during this time. If you’d like to pop in to chat about your plans for next session or to borrow resources, please do give us a call first on 01224 620111 – we’ll be delighted to see you, but don’t want you to have a wasted trip!
In 2004 Aberdeen became the first Fairtrade city in Scotland. Every two years since then, the Fairtrade steering group is required to show the commitments the city continues to make to maintain the award.
What is required?
Glad you asked!
To achieve Fairtrade status a city must continue to take action on the five goals set by the Fairtrade Foundation. These are:
Local council passes a resolution supporting Fairtrade and agrees to serve Fairtrade products
A range of Fairtrade products are readily available in the area’s shops and served in local cafés, restaurants and pubs
Local workplaces and community organisations support Fairtrade and use Fairtrade products wherever possible
Media coverage and events raise awareness and understanding of Fairtrade across the community.
