W H Collier were proud to sponsor the Suffolk Skills Brickwork competition once again at this years Suffolk Show. As always the standard of work shown by the students at the three colleges was outstanding! Well done to all who took part.

All teams

W H Collier Ltd supplied the handmade bricks for the competition which was based around this years Suffolk Show theme, in memory of WW1.  The students had two days to construct a concave wall from a plan depicting the image of the St George Cross.

We supplied W H Collier Aldeburgh Red (outer edge and cross) W H Collier Primrose Yellow (background) and Primrose Weathered (basket weave flag sections)
