PUPILS at Grenville Combined School found out more about the growing of bananas earlier this month.

A banana grower from The Windward Islands, Anton ‘Tookie’ Bowman, went along to the school to talk about Fairtrade bananas as part of Fairtrade Fortnight.

We managed to catch Mr Bowman on video.

The fortnight, which ran from February 27 to March 11 included the Big Brew and market stall.

The theme for the Fortnight was ‘Take a step for Fairtrade.’
