Grantham College hosts bricklayers competiton
Competitors travelled from as far as Burton-on-Trent and Derby as Grantham College played host to the regional Guild of Bricklayers competition last week.
Jack Ellis of Derby College was crowned the winner at senior level at the event on Thursday while Burton and South Derbyshire College’s Sam Krywuik took the junior prize.
Grantham hosted the Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire regional competition for the first time since 1984.
Level 3 Graphic Design student Jason Murphy designed the event’s programme.
Participants were asked to construct a complex design to specification within a time limit.
Hazel Gunby, who manages the construction course at Grantham College, was delighted with how well the event was received.
She said: “The day went smoothly and was a great success.” Mike Keenan, construction lecturer at Grantham, added: “It was a good opportunity for the students to showcase their work.”
