Right royal honour for top apprentice Joe Price.
Joe Price (21), who lives in Lawley Village in Telford, said that it was an amazing experience to be invited to an event in Buckingham Palace.
“It was an honour and a privilege to be invited by the Duke of York. He was very appreciative of the achievements of the apprentices and their employers,” he said.
Joe finished fifth in the World Skills competition held last year in London, which aims to showcase high standards in the industrial and service sectors, beating other carpenters from around the globe.
