Celebrating art of Fairtrade

ART enthusiasts are being invited to see novel work that has gone on display as part of Fairtrade Fortnight.

Schools in Hartlepool have been involved in creating art pieces made of labels and products that bare the Fairtrade logo.

A celebration evening is being held today at the exhibition in Hartlepool Art Gallery, in Church Square, to mark the youngsters’ artistic talents.

Work will be judged during the event, while visitors can also help a national effort to set the record for the longest piece of bunting.

The evening starts at 5.30pm and is free to attend.
