WOODBRIDGE electrical apprentice Ben Corke is celebrating after scooping a regional award.

Mr Corke, 20, was crowned East of England's Best Apprentice by training firm JTL at a ceremony held at Chilford Hall in Cambridgshire.

He beat off eight other hopefuls after he was nominated for the award by his JTL training officer for his continued hard work and dedication to his apprenticeship training.

He described the award as “a real honour”.

“I can't thank enough my JTL mentor Ron Hilditch and employer Plant Electrical and Plumbing, who have supported me to gain the necessary skills and experience which will help me in the future,” he said.

“They have inspired and encouraged me to recognise what I can achieve as an electrician.”
