IT was a proud moment for the parents, families and tutors of Bicton graduates as the students processed through Budleigh Salterton to St Peter's Church.

The annual Procession of the Mace was attended by chairman of the governors, John Lee, and college principal David Henley.

Dressed in gowns and mortar boards, the graduates had studied a range of subjects at the college.

During the service professor David Fellows, associate Dean in the University of Plymouths faculty, presented a number of awards.

He said the ceremony was a 'proud moment' for everyone involved at the college who had supported the students through their studies.

"We are delighted to see the successes of all our graduates," said Mr Fellows. "The successful completion of a foundation degree is a great achievement and we wish them all the very best for the future.
