7:24am Saturday 9th March 2013 in News
YORK’S annual Fairtrade Market in Parliament Street draws to a close this weekend.
Alongside traders from across the UK selling food, gifts, crafts and clothing, there will be craft workshops.
Yesterday a group of students from Access To Music put on a show featuring specially composed music by a number of acts.
The two-week festival, timed to coincide with the national Fairtrade Fortnight, has seen events taking place across the city, from Copmanthorpe to Holtby.
Coun Linsay Cunningham-Cross, who sits on the Fairtrade city steering group, said: “York is proud to be a Fairtrade city. It is great that as a city we can give the message that we support fairness and a fair day’s wage for everyone, no matter where they work.”
