In celebration of Neston's continuing status as a Fairtrade town, the flowerbed at Chester Road car park has been given a welcome makeover.

With the agreement of the County Council's Environmental Services, members of Neston Fairtrade Town Group recently dug over and replanted the Chester Road car park flowerbed, with the Fairtrade logo.

Look for products which carry this international Fairtrade symbol, which is the most globally recognised ethical label. Buying these, ensures that farmers and workers receive a fair minimum price for products plus extra money called a Fairtrade Premium, to spend on projects in their community. They have rights to join unions, work in safe conditions, and ensure there is no use of child labour.

Thanks are also due to Margaret Heibel's son, Robert, who kindly made the 3D printed plastic signs for the flowerbed. It was a warm morning and the workers were very grateful to receive bottles of water given to them from the Salon Dene Hair Stylists on Chester Road.
