. Twenty-seven ten-year-old children visited the town with adults as part of a three-day rugby tour.

The party stayed at Dukes and watched England beat Wales in the Six Nations last Friday at Sidmouth Rugby Club- then took to the field themselves on Sunday.

Youngsters were out and about in the town on Saturday morning as part of a team quiz to find out about Sidmouth.

Sidmouth resident Iain Burns was on the spot to snap this picture.
