Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson and Cllr Steve McGinnity with helpers at the Justice & Peace Fairtrade event at St Helen's Church in Crosby.

Sefton Central Labour MP Bill Esterson showed his support for Fairtrade when he attended the Big Brew Fair in Crosby at the weekend.

The MP and Manor Ward Labour councillor Steve McGinnity attended the Crosby Justice & Peace Fairtrade event at St Helen's Church.

Sefton officially became a Fairtrade borough last year.

The Crosby event was held to officially mark Fairtrade Fortnight.

Following the event, Bill said: "It was great to see a Fairtrade event being held right here in Crosby. It shows that this community cares about this issue.

"The event highlighted just how easy it can be to make every day choices which can have real and long term benefits for produces here and across the world.

"More and more people are following the example which was pioneered by the Co-op movement and choosing Fairtrade goods which in turn challenge some very obvious injustices. It is only fair that farmers and producers across the world get a fair deal for their produce.

"I applaud the Crosby Justice & Peace group for organising a fantastic event with the Co-op and Traidcraft as well as all those who attended.

"We can all make very small differences every single day which make a big difference to people who need it the most."
