Fairtrade award for Iron Acton holiday cottage THE owner of an Iron Acton holiday cottage is celebrating after winning a silver award for supporting and promoting fair trade. Denise Smith received the accolade for Commonwealth Cottage in the South West Fairtrade Business Awards scheme. Last year she scooped a bronze award for the cottage in the category for best fair-trade accommodation. Denise said: “I was thrilled. I thought I would get a bronze award again but this has given me inspiration to go for gold next year.” The cottage in Latteridge was one of five South Gloucestershire businesses honoured at the annual award scheme. Ian Boulton, chairman of South Gloucestershire Council, praised those running the businesses, saying they demonstrated how to be successful while also being

ethical. He said: “South Gloucestershire Council is committed to supporting Fairtrade and helping to protect the livelihoods of farmers and

workers in the developing world.” Fairtrade coffee producer Margarita Espinoza from Nicuragua was a special guest at the award ceremony.

Petrolheads are being challenged to show their skills at the South Gloucestershire Show this summer. The Bristol Motor Club, one of the oldest clubs in the country, is holding an ‘Au tosolo’ event at the show. It’s challenging members of the public to prove their car control skills around a special track at the Henfield site. At stake is a place on the South Gloucestershire Show leader board and the chance to walk away with a trophy. Their challenge is part of a motor show at the event this year. Graham Searle, of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club, is running it and says he’s been delighted with the response: “We are expecting over 250 classic exhibits this year, along with many fantastic new cars being displayed.” The Jaguar Enthusiasts Club will also be running a draw with the chance to win a Jaguar XK Coupe. The South Gloucestershire Show takes place on August 2 and 3.
