The UK’s landscape gardening team prepare for WorldSkills 2007 The fifth programme features Tim Lancaster and Keith Chapman, Britain’s landscape gardening team for WorldSkills 2007 which takes place in Japan in November. The pair won the UK Skills selection competition, having reached the formidable standards required to make the team and to stand a chance of winning a medal. They are both in full-time employment. Tim works for a property developer near Leeds and is given the responsibility for a landscaping scheme at an exclusive six acre property. Keith works for a small business and we meet him working on site on a snowy winter day in Yorkshire! They travel together to Harewood House to meet the head gardener who explains the art and philosophy of a Japanese garden. It’s a reconnaissance mission which they share with the UK Skills training manager who will oversee their intensive preparations for the WorldSkills event.
