Scholars mingled with Santa and his two helpers Rudolph and Dasher at the college’s Christmas market.

Guests kept warm with gingerbread lattes and hazelnut hot chocolates served from the Dagenham Road, Dagenham further education centre’s coffee shop, with seasonal pastries provided by catering and hospitality students.

Students stocked and managed all the stalls at the event, which ran from 3.30pm to 7pm on Thursday.

Helpers ranged from fashion and textile students, who designed bespoke Christmas post cards, to those studying floristry, who created lavish wreaths.
