Paul Uppal, a Member of Parliament for Wolverhampton South West, recently opened the new FairTrade shop.

Run by the Wolverhampton City FairTrade Partnership, the shop was originally located at Darlington Street Methodist Church but had to relocate after a fire hit the Church back in March. The new store continues to offer a wide variety of FairTrade produce form coffee and cookies to craft goods including jewellery and gifts.

The opening ceremony also included a poem by pupils from Bilston CofE Primary School, and a talk from the shop's manager David Fulljames.

Following the opening Paul commented, "I am delighted to see that, after the unfortunate setback earlier in the year, the FairTrade shop is back up and running again. The FairTrade Foundation helps ensure that workers are paid a fair price for their produce, and I hope that people across the city will support this great charity and pay a visit to the shop."
