Five Axe Valley young people have been presented with their Duke of Edinburgh’s gold awards.
They were Adam Taylor, of Axminster, twins Rory and Marianna Dyer, from Seaton and Alice Wittridge and Josh Fletcher, from Kilmington.
The youngsters received their certificates from Sir John Calve, Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Devon, at a ceremony in Exeter.
Anna Crabbe was also awarded a long-service certificate, for 22 years’ service to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme as a leader of Five Alive D of E Awards at Kilmington, to which the teenagers belong.
They are all off to St James’ Palace later in the year for a royal presentation, except Josh who has been invited to the Duke of Edinburgh’s Garden Party to celebrate the award scheme’s diamond jubilee year.
