YOUNG apprentices had a visit from some special guests.

Suffolk Coastal MP Therese Coffey and local county and district councillor Tony Goldson dropped by Hammonds Land Rover in Halesworth.

The pair were visiting to mark National Apprenticeship Week.

They were treated to a tour of the showroom from owner Derek Hammond before talking to apprentices.

Dr Coffey said: “Speaking to the current and recent apprentices gave a good insight into the career choices available.

“The partnership that Hammonds has with leading car manufacturers is of really high quality.

“The more we can help encourage other employers and people to take the apprenticeship route, the better for Suffolk.
