Students from Bexley Adult Education College have been chosen to put together victory bouquets for Olympic winners.
The Brampton Road institute in Bexleyheath is one of three which will be working in partnerhsip with Jane Packer Flowers in adding their touch to the Games.
Tutor Linda Barton said: “It’s an honour and a lovely opportunity to be involved in the Olympics.
“We’ve got to produce about 600 in total which will be a lot of effort but it will be totally worth it. This is something that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.”
About 50 past and present students will work on a rota system, starting tomorrow (July 27), to put the bouquets together for medal winners on the podiums.
They attended a training session at Jane Packer’s central London headquarters, hearing how the bouquets have been designed, the concept behind the colours and themes and how to construct the floral icon.
