The winners on the day were: Samual Williams for Level 1, who won a tool bag equipped with essential tools for getting him started in his Carpentry career and Callum Covington, for Level 2, who won a Metabo DAB Site Radio and Cordless Drill/Driver set, which sets him up perfectly for his first day on site, in the summer!  

Lee Dunne, Curriculum Leader for Construction said:  

“The day was a huge success, the craftmanship on display was a real pleasure to see and the judging process was right down to the wire! We hope to build on this model for years to come and onboard more sponsors and Colleges to compete with us.” 

Many congratulations to the winners from everyone at Andover.
