Snows Timber recently sponsored prizes for carpentry and joinery students graduating from various stages in their wood occupations courses at Cornwall College this summer.

Sam Coke won the College’s 1st Year Wood Occupations Student Award. Tutor Dan Atherton said Sam had a “natural ability for carpentry and joinery”.

Danny Foster won the College’s Best Wood Level 3 Apprentice Award. Tutor John Vincent, said: “Danny, who works for Terry Harris & Sons in North Cornwall, always produced quality work for his employers and is an asset to the company.”

Runners up for the Level 3 award were Matthew Vincent and Kyle Davey.

Snows Timber also sponsored a group award for the Full Time 2nd Year Wood Occupations students, as the College said all students in the group had done exceptionally well.

“In an age of composite and recycled materials, Snows Timber is keen to encourage the next generation of carpenters and joiners to appreciate the quality and aesthetics of real solid wood as a practical working material,” said Mark Bowers, sales and marketing director at Snows Timber.
