John Nice, college spokesperson, said: “The college has grown considerably over the last few years both in terms of the number of students we have and our showcase event that is the Big Day Out.

“While there is an educational slant to many of our activities, the day is based around family fun and everyone seemed to have a great time this year.

“Even now, most people still think that we only do agricultural courses at the college so it was fantastic that so many people managed to get a flavour of the huge range of courses and activities we are involved in.”

It was the fourth consecutive year that the college has hosted the Big Day Out.
