Linlithgow was the first town in West Lothian, and the fourth in Scotland to become a Fairtrade Town, achieving Fairtrade Town status on 28 January 2004. We work to foster Fairtrade in the town, with craft fairs, coffee mornings, fashion shows, events in schools, as well as celebrating Fairtrade Fortnight each year. Since 2004, Linlithgow's commitment to Fairtrade has gone from strength to strength. There have been chocolate tasting events, a jewellery bazaar, an Acoustic Café and fashion shows all to promote Fairtrade and demonstrate the huge range of goods on offer.
Why would I be interested in getting involved?
The Linlithgow Fairtrade Partnership is open to any local community group or individual who is interested in promoting Fairtrade.
