Plumber wins top award

The Southland Times - - News -

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.
