Devon Sports Awards


Community sporting heroes and heroines were celebrated in style at Sandy Park on  Friday 22nd June at the 21st Devon Sports Awards. Stars from the sporting, entertainment and culinary world came together to pay tribute and thank those that enable thousands of people in Devon to be active and enjoy sport at a grass-roots level.
