Tonight (Tuesday) sees the pre Christmas council meeting, which will consider a report from the audit and regulatory committee looking at some of the council’s rules and procedures for amongst other thing’s representatives to outside bodies. Recommendations from the executive considering the council’s Gambling policy and the council tax base, and final a motion from fellow Glossopdale Labour Councillor Roger Wilkinson on Fairtrade.
The motion from Roger look’s to support the work that is already been done in Glossop, Buxton and elsewhere within the High Peak by local group working to get ‘Fairtrade town’ status for town’s across the area.
As a member of the Co-operative Group, the motion is one that I look forward to been able to support, and I look forward (hopefully) to seeing the Borough Council, working with local groups to support the aims of Fairtrade. Including I hope some sort of event during the next Fairtrade fortnight which will take place between the 26th February and the 11th March 2007.
