Two students from Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor's Dolgellau campus recently triumphed in a prestigious All-Wales Guild of Bricklayers Welsh regional final competition.  Ifan Williams from Llangwndadl near Pwllheli and Lewis Griffiths from Machynlleth travelled to Bridgend College to take part, competing against the best bricklaying students from across Wales.

Lewis competed in the junior section and took the first prize against 13 others.  Ifan also won the senior section, competing against 8 senior bricklayers in what was a tense, tough competition.

Lewis and Ifan will now proceed to represent Wales in the national UK final in Brooklands College in Weybridge, Surrey on 27 June 2018.

Michael Taylor, Programme Area Manager for Construction and Engineering at Coleg Meirion-Dwyfor's Camda Construction Centre, said:

"We are proud that our students took the top prizes in both the senior and junior sections of this competition, prevailing against stiff competition from across the whole of Wales.  We wish them both the best of luck in June when they proceed to compete at UK level and hope they continue with their success there."
