Veterans enjoyed a free three-course meal cooked by students this Armistice Day.
Oaklands College welcomed 22 guests, including both veterans and current service men and women, to The Stables restaurant on November 8 for the Veterans Day Lunch.
It was held to commemorate Armistice Day 100 years ago.
The eatery, which is staffed by catering and hospitality students and lead by award-winning chefs, was also decorated with tributary pictures taken by photography students.
Head chef Martin West, who led the catering service, said; “As a college we take pleasure in supporting the local community. The event went incredibly well and the students who were on-hand were a glowing tribute to the college.”
