Floristry shop opened at Doncaster College

There was a festival of colour as a college opened its new floristry shop.

Doncaster College opened the shop last week with Gill Parkes, head of the academy of commercial enterprise, leading the celebrations.

Floristry students got the chance to showcase their skills by demonstrating a number of floristry practices, such as Christmas wreath making, buttonhole making and bottle wrapping with guests able to have a go.

Catering students, meanwhile, were on hand from the hospitality and catering department at the college, served champagne and canapés throughout the event, and guests had the opportunity to buy items from the shop.

Guests were also entered into a raffle, with the lucky winners announced by Kerry Marr, the college’s assistant director for land based studies, at the end.
