EXCHANGE visit: A group of 15 horticultural students from the Czech Republic came to Bicton College recently as part of a European exchange programme.

The students, who attend the Kopidlno Gardening School, are taking part in the ‘How gardens can make our environment friendlier and better’ exchange project which has been funded through the European Union and the British Council’s Comenius programme.

The programme’s objective is to improve the students’ future employment prospects and encourage active European citizenship.

SCARECROW cash: At least £2,000 will be donated towards the upkeep of All Saints Church and the churchyard in East Budleigh following last month’s highly successful scarecrow festival.
