People can raise a toast to 10 years of Wolverhampton being a Fairtrade City at a special picnic this weekend.

The Wolverhampton Fairtrade Partnership is holding a free event for all the family at Bantock Park on Saturday (10 May, 2014) - also World Fairtrade Day - between 12pm and 3pm.

Visitors are encouraged to show their support for Fairtrade by bringing along their own picnics with the challenge to include at least 1 Fairtrade item.

Fairtrade vintage teas served up by the Friends of Bantock House and Park while the popular Courtyard Café will also be offering Fairtrade coffee and snacks.

Teddy bears are welcome to join in the fun at a special teddy bear's picnic, and visitors are also invited to try their luck on vintage games from Bantock House Museum.

Ann Bickley from Wolverhampton Fairtrade Partnership said: "We're delighted to be celebrating 10 years of Wolverhampton being a Fairtrade City and we're hoping as many people as possible are able to join us at our Fairtrade picnic to mark this important anniversary."
