There were no knights in shining armour slaying dragons, but a group of Exmouth Rotarians did find a way to mark St George’s Day.
Some 80 guests and carers were invited on a voyage along the Exe Estuary to mark the day dedicated to the patron saint of England.
The legend says that St George, reportedly a Roman soldier, slayed a dragon in the 12th century.
England celebrates St George’s Day on April 23 every year.
In 2018, invited guests of the Rotary Club of Exmouth and District aboard the Pride of Exmouth were treated to views along the Exe Estuary.
Under the leadership of Rotarians Jane Williams and Tracy Mayer, those on board were able to enjoy the voyage along with cream tea and a free raffle.
A spokesman for the Rotary club said: “With clement weather and the magnificent views, a thoroughly good afternoon was enjoyed by all.”
