Staff and students took part in a range of activities during the day-long fair and were able to fill in some of the reasons why they loved their college.

One student said he loved his college because "it supports me to achieve my dreams" and another added "I love my college because it cares about the environment".

The Love Our Colleges fair was held to support the nationwide Association of Colleges (AoC) initiative Colleges Week.
