Star members of staff were honoured for their efforts at the Yorkshire Coast College Star Awards.

The event is held each year to recognise the achievements of staff at the college and thank them for their hard work.

Staff and guests enjoyed a drinks reception and dinner laid on by hospitality students.

Sue Lazenby, head of central support services, said: “It was a very successful night. The students who prepared and served the food did a magnificent job.

“There was a great atmosphere on the night and it’s really nice for people to be made to feel special.”

She added that the winners are notified on the last day of term before Christmas and the awards night is when the official presentations are made.
