The Aberystwyth Fairtrade group was setup in 2004 to increase the awareness of and
support for Fairtrade in the town. For some time, it has been meeting as a core
group of 4 to 6 members. At the AGM in 2015, the meeting failed to appoint the required
committee for 2015/6. It was with great regret that at the final group meeting in
November a motion was passed to dissolve the group. Former town group members will
continue to be involved in informal action to promote Fairtrade in the town through
activities during Fairtrade Fortnight.
In line with a commitment made in 2003 by the Town Council to support and promote
Fairtrade, the present Town Council has agreed to undertake the tasks linked to the
renewal of Fairtrade town status. From now on, any enquiries from this web site
will be routed to the Town Council.
