Plumber wins top award
A Wanaka man has been named as the Plumbing World’s Young Plumber of the Year, after a close competition in Hamilton. Hayden Findlay out-performed nine other competitors from around the country to win his share of $20,000 worth of prizes, including a trip to Indonesia. The Young Plumber of the Year competition recognises not only proficiency on the job, but passion for the plumbing industry. The competition saw the 10 finalists go head to head in several skills tests, installing a basic bathroom in a matter of hours, and a theoretical written test at Wintec’s Centre for Trades. Findlay was stoked with his win.
