We're a Fairtrade Borough

The Fairtrade Roadshow hit the road this week, kicking off in Billingham Town Centre yesterday. Unfortunately, a little breakdown in communications meant that the trailer arrived late and didn't get into a very good position. The early sunshine gave way to cloud and bitterly cold wind and the balloons and bunting wouldn't stay in place. The display kept threatening to blow off the table! On the plus side, the people were interested and a good number signed pledges to spread the word.
Tomorrow we're in Stockton market and also in the Town House, presenting the certificate to the Deputy Mayor for the people of the Borough. I need to write a short speech, not so that I know what to say but so that the press can have copies!
