Peterborough Lido has made a splash by gaining Fairtrade status.

Peterborough City Council Chief Executive Matt Gladstone joined Fairtrade volunteers at the Lido after the status was awarded to the attraction.

Beki Sellick, Fairtrade Peterborough Coordinator said: “It’s great to have Matt Gladstone’s support for all the hard work that Council staff and others in the city are doing to make Fairtrade easy for the rest of us. There are so many reasons to choose Fairtrade, for the difference it makes. Most people know that Fairtrade empowers families and communities in the global south. But not everyone realises that choosing Fairtrade also helps fightback against climate change.”
