Moreton Morrell College floristry lecturer Tina Aram and recent graduate Zoe Rowlinson were both awarded medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Lecturer Tina was a finalist in the RHS Chelsea Florist of the Year competition while Zoe, 21, who completed her Level 4 qualification at the college last year, competed in the RHS Chelsea Young Florist of the Year final.

They both created spectacular Brazilian-inspired carnival headdresses and Zoe was awarded a Bronze medal, while Tina received a Silver Gilt Medal.

Floristry lecturer Jane Benefield from Moreton Morrell College said, “Huge congratulations to Tina and Zoe – their headdresses were fabulous and they thoroughly deserved their medals. I hope their success inspires more of our students to get involved in competitions and show what they can do.”
