On Tuesday 3rd of July 2018 at Bicton Arena, Clinton Devon Estates held the 25 year celebration of the Kingfisher Award Scheme, along with the launch of East Devon KAS. A fantastic turnout from the schools and family, and the weather permitted the celebrations to be held outside.

We had a really lovely afternoon celebrating! Really enthusiastic children, and fantastic projects on display! Well done to all! 🐦 🌳 🌿 πŸ› 🌼
