Three floristry students from Shuttleworth College made it through to the regional heats of the World Skills UK competition.
The event was staged in the spacious surroundings of the campus based within Old Warden Park, where Tracey Street, Marysia Hyde and Maria Wolens competed with three others from two establishments elsewhere in the region.
Royalty and the Jubilee
The theme was Royalty and the Jubilee. All six contestants had to make flower tiaras, a structural arrangement for a Jubilee marquee entrance table, and a hand-tied bouquet.
“The three did really well to get through to this stage out of 75 UK entrants. The winners of this heat go through to the UK finals in Romford in November,” explained Claire McNamara Floristry Tutor,
“We were delighted to host the event and especially thank our suppliers Savin Wholesalers for sponsoring this regional event.”
The Bedford College Group has a record number of entrants in this year’s WorldSkills UK across a range of subjects and campuses across Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire. The Group has been a regular competitor in World Skills events, particularly in computing and IT for a decade.
The results of the regional heats will be announced on July 7th.
