A VALUABLE lesson in the importance of Fairtrade produce was delivered to youngsters through a poetry workshop.
The session, for pupils from St Luke's Catholic Primary School on The Willows, Frodsham, was held at Castle Park Arts Centre by Cheshire's Poet Laureate, Andrew Rudd.
'I became interested in Fairtrade after I was asked to write a piece to celebrate the town of Macclesfield gaining Fairtrade status,' said Mr Rudd.
'This got me thinking about the movement and I began to research it.
'Getting children to write poems about this topic can take them right to the issues and help them feel we can make a real difference.'
The poems will be read at the grand opening of the council's exhibit at this summer's RHS Show at Tatton Park.
The title will be Fairtrade - a journey from poverty.
