By Adam Guest, Royston Reporter Saturday 3rd November 2012
English apprentice Daniel Grimshaw, boss David Hughes and French apprentice Guillaume Sanguan.

From the south of France to South Yorkshire.

 

A young apprentice has come to town to brush up on his carpentry skills by helping make sheds at Elsecar Heritage Centre.

 

Guilaume Sanjuan, 17, from Nimes, has been giving a helping hand to David Hughes owner of Elsecar Garden Products.

 

David, 50, who makes garden furniture, summer houses and sheds, has been at the centre for the last 20 years.

 

He was contacted by the South Yorkshire branch of company Business and Education about taking on a European apprentice as part of its European Apprenticeship Programme.

 

Guilaume, who is learning joinery in France, came to work with David on Monday and has been helping to carry wood, sweep up and make shed panels.
