Bicton College graduates will be celebrating the fruits for their labours when they take part in the Procession of the Mace through Budleigh Salterton

The annual procession, by the Bicton College graduates and their tutors, starts at 2.15pm and heads for St Peter’s Church.

The students have all completed Foundation Degree and PGCE courses at Bicton College.

Dr Malcolm Findlay, associate dean at the University of Plymouth, will address the students, their families and friends before handing out the awards.

Bicton College principal and chief executive David Henley said: “This ceremony is a highlight in our academic calendar for higher education graduates.

“It’s a great opportunity to celebrate the wonderful achievement of each and every one of our students, many of whom have had to rise to great challenges to achieve their goal.”
