That this House recognises that 2022 marks 20 years since Strathaven received its Fairtrade Town status; recognises that, because of the Fairtrade status, Strathaven ensures farmers are paid a fair price for the work they do and have a guarantee that the price of their products will always cover the cost of production; appreciates all that the town has done, including holding Traidcraft stalls on Gala Days, Reindeer Day and at the Balloon Festival, a fashion show for One World Week, a PowerPoint presentation on a study trip to Nicaragua and numerous local talks; acknowledges the founding members for all the time they have devoted to the group; and calls on the Government to commemorate the achievements of Strathaven Fairtrade during the past 20 years.
