Councillors and officers are now once again able to enjoy a proper freshly brewed cuppa in a genuine cup-and-saucer. Not only that, but the supplies will be Fairtrade, as befits a Council supporting our Fairtrade City status. It was a bitter blow that the dreaded plastic sachet machines made their appearance shortly before we gained ‘Fairtrade City’ status six years ago.
Many Councillors found the arrangement an embarassment, and joined me in calling for Fairtrade and a return to the old fashioned cuppa. One that you can drink without burning your hands or your conscience. Cheers!
