A PAINTING of a North-East college at the centre of a £5m revamp has been handed over to staff.

Curtis Office supplied the furnishings for a building programme which is nearing completion at Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College, in Darlington.

The firm's managing director, Roger Curtis, commissioned a painting by Ian Fennelly to mark the scheme to transform the college.

The finishing touches are now being put to the new-look buildings, ahead of the official opening on Wednesday, October 20.
