Apprentices in seat of power

Some of our apprentices took on the politicians in London!

Eight Marston’s apprentices showed off their skills to MPs at the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, London yesterday (Tuesday 7 March). It’s all part of National Apprentice Week (6-10 March) as they joined a group of 70 apprentices from all around the pub, bar, brewing and casual dining sector. The idea was to showcase our vibrant industry and the range of opportunities it offers to young people. On the day, they got to meet a number of VIPs and even challenge them in some interactive tasks. We introduced a mischievous Hobgoblin element to ours to make sure we promoted our award-winning beers.

The magnificent seven were: Sam Edley, The Apple Cart, Peterborough; Harley Dawson, The Running Horse, Fakenham; Aaron Hodds and Dominic Bainbridge, The Six Medals, Middlesbrough; Alison Marshall, Moorhen, Peterborough; Jade Shepherd, The Glassworks, Stourbridge; Lauren Harris-Key, The Old House at Home, Pelsall, West Midlands.

Keith Fletcher, General Manager of The Apple Cart, also went along – he’s a great example of a Marston’s born and bred GM who started as a Level 3 Apprentice. Keith spoke about his experience to the parliamentarians, who included Wolverhampton MP Rob Marris, and Andrew Griffiths, MP of Burton-on-Trent.

Jo Bradford, Apprenticeship Manager, said: “It was a fantastic event. Our talented apprentices did us proud and were great ambassadors for Marston’s.”
