Campaigners are gearing up for a range of events in Sidmouth to celebrate Fairtrade fortnight.
This year, Sidmouth Fairtrade group will kick off with a treasure hunt.
Eagle eye hunters of all ages will need to be on the hunt for Fairtrade support stickers, which will be found in windows, doors and inside buildings around the town.
Entry forms are available from the Library and Co-op store and should be returned to the Library by Saturday 3 March. The prize-giving will take place at a Fairtrade Coffee Morning at the Library on Saturday, 10 March.
Wendy Spratling, the town’s Fairtrade group co-ordinator, said: “We think the competition will prove a fun way to showcase the many places where Fairtrade goods can be purchased locally.

The fortnight will run from February 26 until March 11 and also includes meet the tea grower on March 1 at 2pm in All Saints Church Hall.
