Guildford College took part in the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations with a Street Party in the Parkroom Restaurant at 12-2pm today, Friday 1 June.
The 50s themed event was catered for and run by Professional Cookery VRQ Level 1 and Level 2 Diploma students. Guests enjoyed a typical English high tea style menu, featuring tasty treats such as pies, pickles and chutneys, bridge rolls, trifle, cup cakes, Victoria sponge with whipped cream and strawberries, hams, sandwiches, fruit salad, shortbreads and flapjacks.
The fully booked party was attended by nearly seventy guests, mostly from two societies; the Guildford Hard of Hearing Support Group and the Anchor Retirement Scheme.
The Parkroom Restaurant is the College’s training facility for students on Catering and Hospitality courses. Open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for lunch from 12noon to 1.30pm and on Wednesday evenings from 7pm to 9.30pm, it serves delicious food at value for money prices made and staffed by catering students.
