The proposal was brought to Mid Ulster District Council by the Council Chair, Councillor Cathal Mallaghan and the proposal was seconded by SDLP group leader, Councillor Malachy Quinn.

” I received a letter today regarding Fair Trade Day which is on May 8,” said the Council Chair.

“The letter contains a request to light up our council buildings to celebrate Fair Trade Day and I would make the proposal to Council that we do so.”

The Council Chair also asked Council’s communications team to “do a bit of work at raising awareness around Fair Trade”.
