Fair trading in fashion at Selkirk

Selkirk’s Fairtrade group is gearing up for a fashion show – Wear Fair – at the town’s high school next month.

The event, which will champion fair trade and local fashion, includes a catwalk display, an auction of the modelled clothes, a raffle and Fairtrade wine and nibbles. The town will also be adorned by a new advertising poster designed by competition winner Jo Marr, a third-year pupil from the secondary school

The fashion show extravaganza will be held on Friday, March 9, at 7pm.

Tickets are priced £5 for adults and £2.50 for schoolchildren, and are available from the Scott’s Selkirk shop.
