A young apprentice from Louth has been honoured with an industry award.

Luke Watson, an apprentice at Peacock and Binnington in Louth, was named Most Improved Student at an awards ceremony last week.

A delighted Luke said: “I’ve had a great time while working for Peacock and Binnington.

“I’ve learned so many industry-relevant skills, made lots of new friends and made connections with people within the industry.”

He added: “I want to remain on this programme and learn more, increasing my knowledge.”

Luke was joined at last week’s awards ceremony by fellow agricultural engineering apprentices who study at Moreton Morrell College.

The apprentices come from all over the country to study for the advanced apprenticeship in land-based service engineering at the Warwickshire college.

All of the apprentices received certificates for completing their apprenticeships, as well as vouchers from Drapers Tools.

Ruth Bailey, director general of the Agricultural Engineering Association, said:“The awards ceremony gives us a glimpse into the future of our industry through our fantastic apprentices.

“These young people will be the ones to take on future challenges and bring in new changes.”
