The final comprised of four disciplines; painting and decorating, bricklaying, plastering and carpentry with the winners from previous heats battling it out for the prestigious “Best in Kent” title.

The winners were: Matt Stringer, Mid Kent College, in Brickwork; Matthew Davis, Canterbury College, in Joinery; Matt Hope, K College, in Carpentry; Alex Prall, North West Kent College, in Painting and Decorating and Simon Jones, K College, in Plastering.

Richard Skinner, Chandlers Commercial Director, commented: “I felt the standard of Bricklaying was very good and the students seemed to embrace the competition well. I am grateful to Thanet College for giving us the opportunity to support the event and hope to be involved in similar projects in the future. I would also like to congratulate all of the finalists and wish them the best of luck in the future”.
