The overall winner taking the John Palmer Cup, is 20-year old Jordan Thurwell. He joined the Blue Door Company based in Thorpe Abbotts near Diss in 2016 as an apprentice carpenter. 


He said: “When I joined Blue Door, I wanted to take on an apprenticeship to learn a trade and build on the previous experience I had. I would like to thank the Blue Door Team and the college for allowing me to do just that! Without their support, I wouldn’t have achieved this award.”


Ken Bowden, Director at Blue Door added: “We would like to congratulate Jordan on achieving his award which is an acknowledgement of his hard work. Jordan’s success would not have been possible without the input of his work colleagues who constantly train, correct and encourage him along the way. We look forward to him achieving even more as his knowledge and skills continue to grow.
