Pershore residence halls officially open

New halls of residence, partly designed by students, are being officially opened.

Warwickshire College is opening the halls, which house 97 students, at Pershore College in Worcestershire. The two colleges merged in 2007.

All the rooms are en-suite and set around a courtyard close to a dining room and a bar.

The halls have been named Bredon and Malvern, after the hills that they overlook.
