THE first apprentices to take part in a new scheme have attended a reception with the Mayor of Rugby and the leader of Rugby Borough Council.
Cllr Kathryn Lawrence, the Mayor of Rugby, and borough council leader Cllr Craig Humphrey welcomed Pinder Dhadda and Edward Benyon, who are midway through their apprenticeships, and Sam Thompson, who has recently started his apprenticeship in business administration.
Pinder is the current horticultural apprentice of the year at Moreton Morrell college, while Edward was runner-up in this year’s apprentice of the year at Rugby college. Both are studying for NVQ Level 2s in horticulture. Pinder is based at Caldecott Park while Edward usually works in the town’s cemeteries.
Cllr Humphrey said: “These apprentices are doing exceptionally well, and are a credit to the council. They have made a positive impression on work colleagues.”
