AN apprentice at MMC Engineering in Milnthorpe has proved to be a real bright spark.

Christopher Meth-Cohn, 25, won the regional Adult Trainee Electrician of the Year award presented by the Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) and Edmundson Electrical.

He has now been nominated for the national award – which will be announced in July.

Bob Peck, of MMC, said: “We are proud of what Chris has accomplished so far. His achievements in his apprentice training were outstanding.”
