On Friday 28 August 2015 the Annual Waterside Graduation and Apprenticeship Awards Evening took place at Langtree Park in St Helens, the home of St Helens RFC.

The event was a huge success with 90 people attending the event including Apprentices, Parents, Employers and New Employers who are embarking on the journey of having an apprentice for the first time.  

A huge thank you must go to Gareth Jones representing the IMechE for attending with his wife who have supported the award over a number of years.
