Havering College students use competition to brighten up their workshops
College students in Rainham have brightened up their workshop walls with some bright new designs.
The level 2 painting and decorating students based at Havering College’s Rainham Construction Centre, New Road, were given the chance to showcase their skills in the competition.
Among the top entries were Tim Bannister’s underground design.
Mature student Tim, 35, cleverly recreated the yellow tiled effect of a station, complete with his copy of the London Underground logo.
Environmentalists would feel at home with the work of Moses Makanga’s green and leafy design.
