FAIRTRADE fortnight is in its second week with schools and organisations promoting fairly traded products.

The trees on the setts along Skipton High Street have been adorned with knitted bands promoting the work of the town's fairtrade group.

Skipton itself is a fairtrade town.

On Saturday, March 5, the Skipton Fairtrade Group will be running a stall at Holy Trinity Church, at the top of the High Street. It will be there from 10.30am to 2.30pm and will be selling a range of fairly traded foods and gifts.

A spokesperson for the group said: "Fairtrade stands for climate justice. Choosing Fairtrade products means more power and money in the hands of farmers and workers, meaning they have more resources to take on the climate crisis."
