Fairtrade and Brentwood’s youngest councillor – Feelgood Saturday 25th February

Caryl Kwei from the Brentwood Fairtrade steering group popped in this morning, to talk about Fairtrade Fortnight, which starts on Monday. This year’s theme is Taking a Step towards Fairtrade, which Caryl explained can be as simple as changing our buying habits for something we use regularly. Caryl also talked about her recent visit to New Koforidua, the first Fairtrade town in Africa, where much of the coco in Fairtrade chocolate is produced; as well as what it means to Brentwood now that it’s joined Billericay in achieving Fairtrade town status. The Brentwood Group is holding a celebration by the chapel ruins in the High Street on Saturday 10th March. If you’d like to organise your own event to support Fairtrade Fortnight, or you’re interested in joining the group, e-mail kim.anderson@brentwood.gov.uk, or phone Caryl on 01277 226834.

I was also joined this morning by James Sapwell, Liberal Democrat councillor for Brentwood North, who, at 21, is one of the youngest serving councillors in the UK. James explained what motivated him to get involved in politics, including why he stood as an Independent for the 2010 General Election while still a teenager, and shared a few thoughts for others interested in becoming politically active. We also talked about various issues, including formal prayers in council meetings, excessive property prices and the US Presidential Elections – not to mention the recent local press furore over the measurement of how well Brentwood Borough Councillors are performing for those they represent! Residents of Brentwood North can contact James at james.sapwell@brentwood.gov.uk, or on 07545 968880.
