We’re very proud to announce that one of our bricklayers has scooped a top apprentice award.

Lynsey Marchant was selected as the Apprentice of the Year for Construction in the 2018 Shrewsbury College’s Apprenticeship Awards. Lynsey is currently studying for a City and Guilds Diploma in bricklaying at the college one day a week, which she is due to complete in September. She was presented with her award for construction at the college’s London Road campus on November 29.

She said: “I have really enjoyed my studies and time as an apprentice. I wasn’t expecting to get this award but am very pleased to have been recognised. I’m looking forward to taking on more challenging work and continuing in my career with Pave Aways.”

Managing Director Steven Owen said: “We are very proud of Lynsey and her achievements. Becoming a brick layer has fulfilled a lifetime’s ambition for Lynsey to work in the construction industry and she is a valuable asset to our teams on site with her dedication and attention to detail.

“Apprentices play a vital role in Pave Aways and currently make up more than 15 per cent of employees. We have a number who have been with us since starting as an apprentice or trainee, and have progressed to senior levels, including our Commercial Director Victoria Lawson.”
