“I was always interested in vehicles and hoped to get a job in that sort of trade from a young age,” Noelene said.

“I actually heard about vehicle trimming from a mate of mine who didn’t want to do it. I put my hand up for it, gave it a go and it just clicked! I love making old things look new.”

Noelene started her apprenticeship in vehicle trimming in 1995 at Harris Canvas and Upholstery in Robinvale.
