The report sought endorsement of an Annual Action Plan 2019 following the success of Tonbridge in securing Fairtrade Town Status in October 2018.  In addition, the Fairtrade resolution approved by the Borough Council in February 2018 had been reviewed and it was proposed that this was updated to reflect that Fairtrade status had been achieved, a Steering Group was in operation and Fairtrade products had been used at some Borough Council events.

(1)     the Annual Action Plan, as set out in Appendix 1 to the report, be endorsed; and


(2)     the resolution, set out in full in paragraph 1.3.1 of the report and summarised above, be approved.
