    Judge Jerry Whiteley commented that, ‘being a judge for the HIP Apprentice of the year is a great experience because you get to see just how good the new younger generation are and so eager to demonstrate their skills and knowledge. Joe Parkinson, did just that. Joe who came a very close runner up should be very proud of his achievement in getting into the top three after beating so many other strong candidates from the regional heats, not easy I can assure you of that.
