Two apprentice plumbers from Lynn’s College of West Anglia could be competing for the chance to be the Best in Britain later this year after beating off the competition at the regional round.

Rob Carter, 21, employed by Downham’s Derek Hales, and Ashley Welland, 21, working for Lynn’s Gaswise, are both in year four of their level three plumbing course.

Rob did exceptionally well to beat all others to win the regional heat, winning a set of levels and a cheque for £150. Ashley was also one of the highest scorers, which could mean both of them going to Birmingham for the prestigious national finals in November.
