ST NEOTS further education provision is set to close after officials at Huntingdonshire Regional College voted to shut the campus on Almond Road.

The decision, taken at a meeting on Tuesday (March 27) evening, comes despite fierce opposition to the plan which will see all construction-based courses move to the California Road campus from September.

The 30 full-time students from St Neots will be offered free travel between the towns.

A college spokesman said: “At Huntingdonshire Regional College we regularly review our courses to ensure we are meeting the needs of the local community and business.
