We were delighted to scoop second best trade stand at this year’s Monmouthshire Show, awarded for our well-presented stand and friendly staff. Our Classic Stoves stand has been exhibited at Monmouthshire Show for four years; this year’s was our largest yet, with several working displays including a pellet stove.

 

The stand was run by senior engineers Nigel Salter and Simon Morgan, plus showroom manager Andrew Salter and apprentice Ryan Hine.

 

Our company director Derek Salter said: “We always enjoy supporting Monmouthshire Show so we were delighted with the win, as it recognises our employees’ professionalism. Ryan won Coleg Gwent’s apprentice of the year in 2018 so he must be our lucky mascot!”

Although the rain gave us a good soak in the afternoon, the 2018 Chepstow show was another stellar year with plenty of displays, food and craft stalls to enjoy, plus an agriculture section which showcased our area's thriving rural communities. 

 

We were thrilled to win the Best Trade Stand - and as our team had worked hard to deck out our trailer with two working  stoves, a great selection of accessories and even an air source heat pump we felt it was deserved.

Our apprentice Ryan Hine is celebrating success at the 2018 Coleg Gwent Business Apprenticeship Awards.

 

Twenty year-old Ryan has beaten scores of other students to win Construction Apprentice of the Year Award 2018. Ryan is studying a NVQ Level 2 in plumbing and heating at the Gwent college; although he has only worked with Salter Heating for just over a year, he's has already impressed colleagues with his enthusiasm and commitment.

 

“I’m delighted Ryan has won – he really deserves this recognition for all his hard work,” said Salter Heating Services director Derek Salter. “I’ve worked in the trade for more than 30 years and Ryan is one of the most mature and willing apprentices that we’ve employed.”

 

Ryan works works across several company teams installing stoves, fires and bathrooms. He said: “I appreciate the opportunity of being nominated by my colleagues – I was really surprised and so pleased to win.”

 

Sponsored by The Worshipful Livery Company of Wales and The Haberdashers Company, the awards celebrate apprentices in sectors including engineering and health and social care. The annual ceremony highlights the importance of apprenticeship programmes for employers and employees, overseen by Coleg Gwent Business with the support of Coleg Gwent.

 

Stephen Owen, Business Development Director, believes that recognising apprentices for their enthusiasm to earn, and learning to meet industry demands is essential.

 

Stephen said, “It’s important that we recognise and celebrate what our apprentices achieve, the work our dedicated businesses offer and the support provided by colleagues at Coleg Gwent and Coleg Gwent Business. The ceremony provides us with the opportunity to hear our apprentices’ journeys which is inspirational.
