Fairtrade Fortnight

St Aidan’s Church, Winstanley invited people to take a step for Fairtrade today and join them at their annual Traidcraft event.

Your local labour team were in attendance. The event was organised by parishioner Patricia Boyle and attended by local residents and members of St Aidan’s Church congregation. Pupils from St Aidan’s Primary School also popped along to learn more about Fairtrade.

Fairtrade is about better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability, and fair terms of trade for farmers and workers in the developing world. By requiring companies to pay sustainable prices (which must never fall lower than the market price), Fairtrade addresses the injustices of conventional trade, which traditionally discriminates against the poorest, weakest producers. It enables them to improve their position and have more control over their lives.

To tackle poverty you need to increase trade as well as give aid. Fairtrade helps millions of people in the developing world. When we choose to eat, drink or wear fair trade products we help change the lives of millions of farmers, workers and their families in developing countries.

Clive Morgan Your Labour Candidate For Winstanley Ward

It is a privilege to serve our community.

From his welsh origins to serving Winstanley Ward at the Town Hall Clive Morgan has packed a lot into his 58 years.

Clive served his country in the Welsh Guards and is a veteran of the 1982 Falklands War - he swapped one Goose Green for the Wigan version after meeting Marie. Marriage and three children followed.  Clive & Marie are now blessed with four grandchildren.

In his spare time Clive helped to develop Goose Green Cricket Club, which play out of its Paris Ave ground and through his leadership and determination the club has secured funding to improve facilities and provide young people with an outlet for their energies. 

Elected in 2010, Clive has campaigned successfully to keep our local greenbelt protected and alongside the community is once again defending it against new proposals that could see Warehousing built on land at junction 25. He led the campaign to reinstate access both ways to Clapgate Lane from the A49 and re-established local Police Surgeries and with GT Manchester Police in response to recent anti-social behaviour incidents.

Clive said, "It is a privilege to serve the area where I live and have raised my family and if, re-elected, I will continue to be a strong voice for Winstanley Ward at the Town Hall."

Anthorn Rd Development

Cllr Clive Morgan visited Anthorn Rd to see for himself the construction of 20 bungalows for older people, part of a £14 million investment by your Labour Council.

The site has undergone clearance work and the first bricks have now been laid. The bungalows, will support the delivery of your council's approach to social care by enabling residents to live longer and healthier lives in their own homes and reduce the demand and costs on care services and on hospitals.

Clive said, "Current population trends demonstrate that we need more housing of this type in local communities to help provide homes that can assist people to live independently in their own homes."

"It is also good news because it brings back into use a brownfield site that has been an eyesore for far too long."

"I look forward to welcoming the first residents to this much needed development."

The homes will be let on affordable rents to those on the housing register with options for shared ownership or owner occupation.
