Presented by Quadrant Director Joe Campion.

Ashley, 21, who joined Lindum in September 2015, was chosen because of his efforts as an ambassador for the construction sector, which have seen him spend time in schools and in the wider community, talking to young people about working in the building industry.

Ashley, who lives in Bracebridge Heath and is currently working on Lindum Homes’ Garret Rise development in Heighington, is in the third year of his apprenticeship.

Former Branston Academy pupil Ashley, said : “I really wasn’t expecting to win. I was actually hoping for second place!

“I was invited on stage and was given a certificate and a glass trophy, which I will be putting on my wall at home.

“It was a really good night. I just want to keep doing my best. I’m quite an ambitious person and I want to see how far I can go. I’m really proud of myself.”
