As you may have already heard The IBTC Lowestoft Broadland Boatbuilder’s Garden won a Gold Medal in the Artisan Garden category at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show. We are very proud of this achievement and the incredible team work involved.
Following many months of preparation which involved the reconstruction of the medieval Chet boat which was found on the Broads in 2013, building began on site on May 10th. It took 10 days for us to transform a bare patch of grass into an ancient Broadland boatyard scene, complete with reed-bed and timber staithe.
A HUGE thank you to all the students and staff involved and those who patiently kept the day to day activities of the college running during the hectic build up.
