The annual competition was organised under the auspices of the Guild of Bricklayers, and this year the Yorkshire Regions event was held locally at Hull College.
Three bricklaying apprentices from Houlton were chosen from 40 Hull College students; one for each of the 3 sections; New Starters, Juniors and Seniors.
Colleges from across Yorkshire were represented with a total of 38 bricklayers apprentice’s to compete in this year’s competition. The standard of the competition was very high, with all our apprentices giving a good account of themselves.
Lewis Jones faced some stern competition in the Senior section, Josh Hunter finished just outside the top three in the New Starters section, while Billy Grimmer won the Junior Section to be crowned “Yorkshire Bricklayer of the Year”.
