“We were really pleased to host the southern heat and be part of this exciting competition” says David McGown, one of Capel’s Arboriculture Team Leaders “There was a great turnout and the competition helps to showcase up and coming climbers and arboriculture as a viable and exciting career path.”

Capel Manor, Merrist Wood, Bridgwater and Plumpton colleges all entered Year 1 and 2 teams, each made up of 3 students.

Congratulations to Plumpton College, whose students made it a clean sweep winning both age groups!
