BARNSTAPLE shoppers will find staff of Somerfield dancing in the aisles at a Fairtrade tea dance when they visit the Braunton Road store on Monday.

The staff will be dressed of formal dance competition outfits ready to waltz around the store and encourage customers to switch from conventional brands to Fairtrade products.

The event is being held to mark the start of Fairtrade Fortnight, which aims to raise the profile of Fairtrade products in order to help producers in developing countries by guaranteeing fair prices.
