KENSINGTON and Chelsea College has opened its refurbished Maxilla Walk Centre.
The new Ladbroke Grove building,which was acquired earlier this year,is home to a motorcycle maintenance workshop, multimedia rooms and a large, modern hair and beauty studio for students.
The November 11 launch coincided with Colleges Week, which saw guests from local youth and community programmes take advantage of free hair and beauty treatment provided by the students.
The college principal, Mike Jetsum, said: "We're delighted to officially launch our new centre and support Colleges Week.
"It's a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the important role that colleges play in our communities."
K&C College offers hundreds of courses at six different sites across the Royal Borough.
