Two Trowbridge schools were rewarded at the Town Hall for their support of Fairtrade Trowbridge.

During the event on Saturday, Hilperton Primary School gave a presentation on the production of palm oil and Walwayne Court Primary School gave a demonstration about banana farming. The two schools were each given a £100 prize.

Visitors to County Hall could also learn more about Fairtrade Trowbridge’s work.

Wiltshire and Trowbridge Town Councillor Steve Oldrieve, who is part of the town’s Fairtrade group, said: “We were amazed at the quality of the schools and their clear depiction of Fairtrade.”
