An aspiring Haverhill plumber has proved his talent by winning a competition in the trade at Cambridge Regional College (CRC) recently.
Daniel High, 16, from White Caville, took first place in the contest, beating 31 other competitors in the internal competition for students studying performing engineering operations in plumbing.
The students had to measure, plan and complete a plumbing task focusing on accuracy, practical presentation and written detail.
Daniel, who was presented with an engraved tankard to mark his win, was praised for his accuracy and attention to detail.
The prize was presented by John Malone, head of construction and engineering at CRC, who said the teenagers had produced some excellent work.
“The students who took part in the competition are all in their first year and it was very encouraging to see the high standard they achieved,” he said.
“Daniel was outstanding in his accuracy and attention to detail and impressed the judges with his work.
“We hope he will go on to represent the college in regional and national competitions and continue his success.”
Daniel said: “I’m really, really pleased about winning the competition.
“I’m hoping to get an apprenticeship in plumbing next year or the year after and my ambition is to own my own plumbing business.”
