Fair Trade in Chepstow

The aims of our group are:-

  • To promote the concept of Fairtrade.
  • To raise awareness in the Chepstow area of the Fairtrade mark and promote sales of products which carry it.
  • To maintain Fairtrade Town status for Chepstow.


On 21st October, members of Chepstow Fairtrade Forum safely visited Undy Primary School to take an assembly of the year 3 and 4 Bubble.  The pupils were shown how Fairtrade works, some of the range of Fairtrade produce available and where to buy them.  They were very attentive and engaged, asking good questions at the end.  Please do get in touch if you would like us to help with bringing Fairtrade to your pupils.

The Monmouthshire Sports Development Team with Chepstow Football Club Coaches and some Fair Trade volunteers. The day was spent with year five pupils from Chepstow Primary Schools who learnt about well-being and life skills including sport. They used Fairtrade footballs for their activities and we were able to talk to them about Fairtrade and why Fairtrade balls are needed.

The Fairtrade logo is a waving person against a background of grass and sky.  Look for this Mark on products when you shop.  It guarantees the producers have been paid a fair price for their products.
