A social group for the over 50s marked World Fair Trade Day with a special event in Wembley on Saturday.

The Club @ St John’s enjoyed a delicious lunch and sampled Fairtrade food at St John’s Community Centre in St John’s Road.

Cllr Nana Asante, a Harrow councillor who is a member of Brent Fairtrade Steering Group, gave a talk on the issue.

Cllr Asante, who is also the deputy Mayor of Harrow and chairperson of Harrow Fairtrade Campaign, congratulated Brent on becoming a Fairtrade borough adding that Harrow is working towards achieving similar status.

Brent became a Fairtrade borough last February.

This means the borough is committed to selling, using and promoting Fairtrade products.
