Builder Tommy Walsh, star of TV’s Ground Force, has opened a £3m construction workshop at Cambridge Regional College.

John Malone, college head of construction and engineering faculty, said: “Tommy talked to the students about the opportunities available when they’ve
trained to the high standards that we
help them to achieve.

“He told them they would always have a trade no matter where their lives took them.”

The new centre has nearly 1,000 square metres of workshop space, classrooms and a dedicated plastering area, and will allow the college to increase its number of trowel trade courses.
