A NEW brick structure went up in Spalding’s Market Place on Thursday – and came down again later the same day.

The half a metre high brick wall was built in two to three hours by Level 2 bricklaying students at Boston College’s satellite centre, the Red Lion Quarter in Spalding, to highlight the vocational courses available to students in the town.

At the same time, Level 1 motor vehicle students were stripping and re-building engines, again to show the variety of practical options available to students.

The Level 1 motor vehicle students will progress to Level 2 programme while the Level 2 bricklayers can either go into industry or continue on the Level 3 course.

“We had quite a bit of interest,” said motor vehicle lecturer and centre co-ordinator Mandla Ndhlovu. “The demonstration raised awareness of the vocational courses in Spalding.”
