The products, created by Communication Specialist College students studying woodwork, include planters, perfect for green-fingered gardeners, and colourful bunny boxes – ideal for storing Easter eggs.

Handmade window boxes are also available, in three sizes and assorted colours.

The students, who run the Enterprise Shop, sell a variety of items throughout the year including wine holders, dog beds and, at Christmas, their famous wooden reindeer.
