In true Devonian style we extend to you a very warm welcome:-
Cheerrs me boodies n uz'l zee ee Dreckly

We are rightly proud to be inviting you to our South West corner of England.
We are a major tourist area, but we are not brash and we have a lot to offer Cachers with so much natural beauty.
We have a wealth of Geocaches to entice you, frustrate you, as well as stretch you,
We are waiting for you all to join us in 2017
The name Devon derives from the name of the Britons who inhabited the southwestern peninsula of Britain at the time of the Roman conquest of Britain known as the Dumnonii, thought to mean "deep valley dwellers"

At the Essex Mega leaflets were distributed advertising non-geocaching attractions in Devon.
The leaflets also advertised a phone app called AppForDevon which has been checked and verified as genuine by Wedtward Marketing and is the only place to get discounts on the attractions advertised. This app is also approved by the Devon UK Mega 2017 committee.
We now have Devon tags available for sale (only) at events the committee members attend.
We also have our limited edition Devon town tags; we will be raffling these of at events the committee members attend as well.
Watch this space for announcements on new coins, tags and path tags.
