Jack Reynolds triumphant in the Midlands
Jack Reynolds of Stephenson College won the Midlands Region competition of the 2015 HIP National Apprentice of the Year Competition.
Held at Stephenson College in Coalville, the competition proved to be a closely fought affair with just 6 points separating the top 4 young plumbers.
The task of plumbing in a sink and a shower using copper pipework tested the skills of the contestants. Final installations were marked for accuracy, levels, quality of soldering, quality of bends and pass-overs and economical use of copper.
With a very high standard of work on display it was Jack who pipped his fellow competitors to the title and a chance to progress to the National Final to be held in April.
