Garstang is a historic market town off the A6 midway between Preston and Lancaster in Lancashire, England. It has a population of about five thousand. At a Public Town Meeting on Thursday 27th April 2000 the people of Garstang voted virtually unanimously for Garstang to become the world's first Fairtrade Town.
This web site provides information on Fairtrade, the Garstang Fairtrade Town story, the Garstang and New Koforidua Link and links to other web sites where you can find more about Fairtrade and Fairtrade Products.
Walk the Fair Trade Way
Between Friday 24 and Wednesday 29 August, four Garstang Oxfam Group members and original pioneers of The Fair Trade Way will walk the route again to promote fair trade and raise money for Oxfam and The FIG Tree in Garstang. They will be accompanied by dedicated Oxfam campaigner Push and take part in storytelling events along the way. For further information, to join us or make a donation visit the Oxfam dedicated webpage here.
The Garstang Fairtrade Steering Group would like to thank the Garstang and District Partnership for their grant funding toward the cost of this website.
