A Terrington St Clement teenager has scooped a win for his brickwork.

Harry Knight, 19, won the top spot for his trade in the Norfolk and Waveney Building Apprentices’ Competition. 

Mr Knight, an apprentice for construction firm Lovell, was awarded at the Royal Norfolk Showground in Norwich.

And fellow apprentice Joshua Philp-Hammond, also 19, took third place in a bricklaying challenge where entrants had to build a wall design within a set time.

Both Mr Knight and Mr Philp-Hammond, who lives in Wisbech, are based in King’s Lynn, working on the Orchard Place new homes development.

They are both set to complete their NVQ Level 2 bricklaying qualification this year by working on site and studying at Lynn’s College of West Anglia.

Lovell regional managing director Simon Medler congratulated the pair for “such a brilliant performance”.

He said: “Competitions are a fantastic way for our apprentices to test themselves against others in the industry and keep pushing to improve their skills. 

“Both these impressive young crafts workers have come into the industry through Lovell’s apprenticeship programme and show why apprentice training is something the company has always championed.”
