Plumbing tutors from City College Brighton and Hove have picked up an award for their work.

Jenni Wood, John Kempshall and Jimmy James were recognised for their skills in the fine art of sheet and cast lead work.

The Worshipful Company of Plumbers presented the trio with the Lead Sheet Association Cup.

They were praised for their practical contribution over many years, giving demonstrations of their skills at the Plumbing Museum, which is at the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum near Chichester.

The museum was founded and is maintained by the worshipful company which hosts demonstrations of the art and craft of plumbing for the enjoyment and education of visitors.

Jenni Wood said: “The Plumbing Museum does an amazing job in raising awareness of the history, heritage and craft of plumbing so we’ve been happy to be involved in the excellent work it does and are really honoured to receive this award.”

Lynn Thackway, the new principal of City College, said: “Our plumbing tutors are highly regarded for their dedication in passing on their skills to the new generation of plumbers so it’s great to see their knowledge and expertise being recognised with this trophy.”
