FLORISTRY students scooped a silver medal with their Titanic display.

With their floral display based on the ill-fated ship, the team from East Durham College were delighted to take second place in the college section at the Harrogate Flower Show 2012.

The students were asked to bring the past into the present, so the seven part-time and two full-time students set about creating the display featuring the sinking of RMS Titanic.

Other historic events represented in flowers by colleges across the region included The Queen’s Coronation, the War of the Roses, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Black Death.
