Skilled Carpentry and Joinery apprentices have produced a gazebo to support the Bury College Childcare department.

A team of Level 3 apprentices donned their tools and steel toe cap boots to assemble a wooden outdoor gazebo in the Bury College Childcare Forest School area. This gazebo will be used by staff and students so that classes can be conducted outside. The Forest School explores different ways children learn and play, with outdoor activities being a big part of children’s development.

Bury College apprentice Tom Hannon was one of the joiners to take part in the project and was delighted to be involved in the initiative. 23 year old Tom, who is currently employed by HHSmith, said, “ As part of my apprenticeship I spend one day a week at Bury College and I really enjoyed spending today working with my peers on a project that will support the College.”

Chris Hutchinson, Bury College Carpentry and Joinery Workshop Tutor and Assessor commented, “Throughout this project, the apprentices showed a great deal of team work and independent thinking. I was really proud to see them all pull together to produce something which will help students at the college.”
