SPALDING Guardian editor Jeremy Ransome and photographer Nikki Griffin have been telling college pupils all about the newspaper industry.

Jeremy and Nikki visited students at the Peele Community College in Long Sutton to give them careers advice about journalism and news photography.

It was the first of a series of planned careers presentations at the recently refurbished college library, and it is hoped to hold two or three similar events each term.

“I am applying to local people to come in and give a brief presentation about their jobs and then answer the students’ questions,” said Samantha King, who has been running the library since September.

“We are keen to develop students’ knowledge and understanding of the world beyond school and the options that are available to them.”
