Guild of Bricklayers Competition
Winners of the Guild of Bricklayers 2016 national competition have been decided this week at PETROC, Barnstaple, Devon.
Senior winner was Jordan Richards of Derby College, while Tim Johnston of Stephenson College, took the junior award.
The finals were a culmination of a competition that included nine heats around the country. At each, finalists were given up to six hours to construct a brickwork model from drawings supplied.
Guild of Bricklayers president, Phil Vine-Roberts, said: ‘It was a fantastic day, it was a privilege to be involved in the judging on the day. The quality of work was truly excellent and all the competitors should be extremely proud of themselves.’
CPI Euromix supplied the mortar for the competition on behalf of the Mortar Industry Association.
