We are proud to announce that we have won a silver award in the South West Fairtrade Business Awards 2018.
The Awards engage organisations to increase take-up and support of Fairtrade in the region, promoting organisations who support Fairtrade and encouraging good practice amongst others.
Each year organisations across the region enter the Awards, and celebrate their achievements in an annual ceremony as part of Fairtrade Fortnight. The Awards are open to everyone: from national chains to sole traders, universities to hotels, food producers and cafés, Fairtrade has a role to play in every workplace.
In all, fifty applicants were recognised at the ceremony for their outstanding support of Fairtrade: through sale and purchase of Fairtrade products, communication of Fairtrade values to their staff and customers and support of Fairtrade in their organisation’s management and policies.
Sandra says: "As many of you are aware The Swan was shortlisted for the Community Pub of The year award, we were down to the last 8 candidates. The presentation was held in The House of Commons which Kelvin and I both attended earlier in the week, however we weren't successful on this occasion however it was still a massive achievement to get this far.
We would like to thank all our customers and supporters that were a major part of us getting to this level and we were asked to enter again this year we have raised over £104,000 for charity in 6 years and the winner we was an amazing candidate has raised over £300,000 in 30 years so we will strive to continue to help local and national charities again."

With few public toilet facilities in Thornbury, particularly in the evenings, The Swan has joined a Town Council partnership to provide clean, safe and accessible toilets in convenient locations in the town centre.
It means anyone can use The Swan's toilet facilities during normal opening hours, with no obligation to buy food or drink.
