PETER WILLIAMSON TRAVEL AWARD GOES TO JOSHUA

Home / News & Opportunities / Member News

Date: 09/06/2017

JOSHUA Stacey from Pershore College has recently been presented with Wyevale Nurseries’ Peter Williamson Travel Award.

The 21-year-old, who is in his second year of a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Horticulture, scooped the accolade after impressing the judges with a written submission and an interview.

Steve Ashworth, Director at Wyevale Nurseries in Hereford, explained: “We would like to congratulate Joshua on winning this prestigious award. We designed the award to encourage a student towards a career in nursery stock production by assisting with a practical placement at a nursery in the Netherlands.

“Joshua won the award from among an excellent standard of student applications due to his determined interviewee skills. 

“The Peter Williamson Travel Award was started in memory of Wyevale Nurseries former owner and chairman, Peter Williamson, who passed away in 2011.”

Joshua will spend three weeks with Henk Huibers at Batouwe Nurseries and three weeks with Frank van Helvert and Derk van Dorland at Huverba Nurseries.
