PUPILS from six Skipton primary schools learned all about Fair Trade at a special fun day.
More than 90 children took part in the event, held at Ings Community Primary School, where they played games and sampled Fair Trade drinks and chocolate.
They were joined by the Mayor of Skipton, Coun John Dawson, and Skipton councillor Eric Jaquin.
Ings Primary assistant head teacher Tracey Bentley said: "It was a great day, and very encouraging how the children took to the idea of Fair Trade."
