Arthur just a little correction in facts here for you This limited company Fresh Creative was not incorporated 8 years ago so could not have possibly been used by the college for 8 years ? in fact it was incorporated only on 20th February 2013 ? See link below https://www.companiesintheuk.co.uk/Compa...
The directors had another company Fusion Creative which was wound up around the 18th February 2013 see link https://www.companiesintheuk.co.uk/ltd/f...

I am guessing the creative wording in the answer suggests Darlington College were fully aware of this " a local creative company" risky business not going out to tender on this when using public funds. though you have to agree a great deal was done here. Very cheap for a 68 page document.
