Colleges Week kicks off with a bang in Crewe

Revamping a church, producing a radio show and nail art demonstrations were among the activities to celebrate Colleges Week.

South Cheshire College students kicked off the week with a Get into the Christmas Spirit coffee morning, which raised £60 for Help for Heroes, and then hit the Market Centre with dance performances.

Decorating students painted the Christadelphian Church in Crewe during the week while media students created a community news show at RedShift Radio station.

“This has been a great opportunity to organise activities in the community and promote the college at the same time,” said events management student James Vickers, 26.

Peter Swift, principal, said: “We are very pleased to have supported Colleges Week with a series of eye-catching activities.

“The aim was to show what the college is all about in the wider community and the events taking place in and around Crewe gave us the perfect opportunity to do that.

“It is important that we give people the opportunity to get into work, improve their chances of finding employment and help to maintain or improve skills which can boost their performance in the workplace.”
