Jacky Fenlon and Carol-ann Howe, pictured above, were the delighted winners of substantial Fairtrade hampers at a ceilidh held at Ripon Grammar School.

The ceilidh was a celebration of Fairtrade which also highlighted the 2012 Take a Step for Fairtrade Campaign and the ongoing Fairtrade Yorkshire Campaign. Linda Scannell, chairman of the local action group, said: “In these difficult times, it’s important that we all make positive decisions about supporting farmers at home and abroad. So buy local and also take another step for Fairtrade.” Music at the ceilidh featured the Village Hop Band.
