Message from the Mayor of Bolton

Bolton Mayor 2016

Bolton has recently received  renewal of its status as a Fairtrade Town. Bolton was one of the first Fairtrade  towns to be accredited in 2003.

Bolton has supported the Fairtrade campaign since 1999 and as the Mayor of Bolton I am proud to be the Patron 2016-2017. 

The progress made over the years has been a credit to all who have worked to support the Fairtrade campaign and to the many members of the public who buy fairly traded products. 

In Bolton nearly 300 retailers , schools, faith communities and workplaces  have signed up to be using or offering fairly traded products. One of the latest is the new University Technical  College  on Dean Road.  Well done Fairtrade in Bolton. Keep up the good work. 

Councillor Lynda Byrne, Mayor of Bolton
