Kingston Maurward Open Day SuccessMonday, June 14th, 2010
The Kingston Maurward Open Day certainly lived to its title of “A Taste of Summer” with glorious sunshine and crowds out in their droves.
The annual open day saw live music, food and entertainment throughout the day and into the evening. It was only towards the end of the last band’s set that the heavens decided to open and there we a few showers.
The event was the perfect showcase for the The Kingston Maurward College to show off the changes that have taken place over the last 60 years and invite more students and adults to join them in next years courses.
The college is home to some 400 students and offers over 300 full time and part time courses. Well known for its rural and land based subjects, there are courses for everyone including outdoor adventure, equine, IT and business related studies. Tutors were on hand from all departments to give advice for those looking to start a new career or just learn a new skill.
The highlight of the day for our children were the tractor rides and falconry display. Whilst the cake stalls and floristry exhibition were a great draw for the Mums and Dads.
