The “outstanding” work carried out by some of West Norfolk’s apprentices has been celebrated.

They were supported by more than 100 employers, family members and friends who attended this year’s College of West Anglia (CWA) Apprenticeship Awards. 

The event, held at Knights Hill Hotel near King’s Lynn on Tuesday, saw 19 awards handed out.

Electrotechnical Apprentice of the Year was Summer Harrison who also received the Kevin Clarke award with Christopher Russell. The award was named after the former CWA electrical apprentice who was killed in a car crash in 1984. 

His parents, John and Janet, recognise two electrical apprentices each year in his honour.

College principal David Pomfret presented the awards with head of engineering at Anglian Water Alliances, Mark Froggatt and John Clarke. 

Mr Pomfret praised the “hugely talented” apprentices for their “outstanding achievements”.

Other winners were: Jessica Ding, Aaron Jones, Eliza Zientalak, Alex Bird, Rachel Mead, Matthew Cooper, Natasha Benton, Ryan Thomson, Frank Etherington, Kathryn Crofts, Cameron Carr, Michael Hewlett, Ross Penn-Symonds and Sarah King.
