Campaign launched to get girls plumbing
9:49am Thursday 10th July 2014 in Business
A WATER company that supplies homes in Ringwood in Fordingbridge is backing WaterSafe’s newly-launched Get Girls Plumbing campaign.
A poll of 2,000 consumers conducted by WaterSafe, a plumbing assurance scheme, revealed nearly a third of women would prefer a female plumber to carry out work in their home.
The poll also found that 38 per cent of women in the UK would learn a trade if they had their time over again.
Fewer than one per cent of plumbers in the UK are women.
