Katherine Robbie, who studies Level 2 Floristry at Northumberland College’s Kirkley Hall Campus was awarded first place in the 'Vive le Velo' category at the Harrogate spring flower show last week.

The entry was a hand-tied bouquet, staged on bicycle handlebars and included the iconic yellow jersey.

Meg Ellison, Floristry tutor, said: "This win is a real accomplishment for the floristry team at the campus because it's the first competition we've entered. Our other students also received praise from judges."
