The theme for Fairtrade Fortnight 2018 was 'Come On In'. Year 4 children at Greenfylde School made their own video and leaflet.

The children from Greenfylde and other local schools also took part in the inaugural 'Young Voice' public speaking competition.  This year on the subject of Fairtrade.


Fair Hair is an initiative designed to encourage Ilminster's Hair Salons to swop their usual teas and coffees for Fairtrade, when offering refreshments to their customers and staff. Participating salons display the "Ask for Fairtrade Here" window stickers. So, where you see the sticker, ask for and enjoy a Fairtrade 'cuppa'. Little changes such as this can make a big difference and Ilminster Fairtrade urges people to support local traders and salons who are working to put Ilminster on the Fairtrade map.
