Stone Federation are delighted to announce the results of the 2016 UK Masonry Skills Challenge.  The competition was fierce and the standards were extremely high so the winners should be justly proud of their achievement.  They were a credit to their colleges and to their employers.  

The Federation would like to thank all of the students who entered and to Weymouth College and Edinburgh College for hosting the regional heats.  We would also like to thank each of the members who sponsored the Challenge, and to Albion Stone Plc for supplying the stone.
