Green-fingered students support Shrewsbury in Bloom

A group of Shrewsbury College students unveiled their contribution to Shrewsbury in Bloom yesterday with the help of the town’s Deputy Mayor.

The Pathways to Progression students revealed two large planters at the front of the College’s London Road Campus, which were adorned with ‘under the sea’ themed artwork.

“It’s incredible to see how the students have come together to prepare the planters and produce the ‘under the sea’ artwork,” said Deputy Mayor of Shrewsbury, Councillor Beverley Baker. “The students have taught me all about the plants they have used. I think it’s brilliant.”

Student Ian Rowe said: “I really enjoyed the art lessons and planting the plants.”

The six-week project has been supported by gardeners from Shrewsbury Town Council and Severn Hospice.

Students held a cream tea and plant sale following the unveiling to raise funds for the Severn Hospice. More than £150 was raised for the charity at the event.
