FAIRTRADE fortnight is set to take place later this month.

The focus of the fortnight, running between February 24 and March 9, will focus on bananas and a special campaign will be launched to attempt to transform the banana industry in favour of the farmers.

Malvern will be getting involved when the chief executive officer of Traidcraft, Mags Vaughn, will be visiting the Great Malvern Priory to give a talk.

This event will take place on Thursday, March 6, at 7.30pm.
