Fair Trade group is looking to boost its membership

East Dunbartonshire Fair Trade Steering Group is looking for new members.

The group is celebrating 10 years of successful operation, but is now looking for extra members with fresh input, ideas and drive to take them forward.

The Steering Group was set up by East Dunbartonshire Council in January 2005 to promote fair trade issues and practices among local businesses, community groups and other organisations. Sustainability is a major part of the remit of the group, covering economic and environmental agendas as well as social aspects.

Organisers will be holding an information meeting for anyone who wants to know more, all ages welcome.

The meeting will take place at Cadder Church South Hall, Bishopbriggs (opposite the Library) on Saturday, February 28, at 10.30am–11.45am. To find out more and register contact Louise Finch at ljfinch7@gmail.com or on 0141 772 1363/07557 966 887.
