Billy’s certificate


Billy then came second in the Institute of Carpenters Craft competition making a radiator cover  by hand. He was the only child that entered who did not have tutor support, nor a workshop or access to college equipment. He made the radiator cover totally by himself and followed the complex plans. When he received his award it was noted about how good the standard of work was with him having no tutor support.
