Apprentice Of The Year 2020

Bobbi-jo's quality craftsmanship and attention to detail caught the eye of the judges. “I was pretty shocked, but also really pleased,” she says. “At the start of the year I had written a list of goals for 2020 and one of those goals was to win Apprentice of the year!”

Motivated by this year’s successes, Bobbi is showing no sign of slowing down, in fact, she’s already got her goals set for the next year. “I want to take out Tier 2 and overall Apprentice of the year!” she says. More info
