Flo Wilson dofe presentation - March 2015Colyton Grammar School student Flo Wilson (18), recently attended St James’ Palace in London to be presented with her Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award by Prince Edward.

Flo, who lives near Ilminster, received a brooch and a certificate to mark her achievement, which took eighteen months to complete.

As part of the process Flo enrolled as an Air Cadet, played for Chard Ladies Hockey 1st team and passed her Grade 8 Flute exam.

The expedition, which is the final part of the qualification, took place in the Brecon Beacons.

Flo described the experience as, “Hard work, requiring a lot of determination but it was also very enjoyable”.
