Scaf­folder Fay’s a high-fly­ing girl on top

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - Watts The Goss - BY KEITH PERRY

WHO says a woman can’t make it in a man’s world? Fay Parker is ris­ing all the way to the top as a scaf­folder.

The 29-year-old is one of just six qual­i­fied fe­male scaf­fold­ers in the coun­try.

And she is work­ing on one of the most high pro­file restora­tion jobs in the world as she helps re­vamp the clock tower hous­ing Lon­don’s Big Ben, where the scaf­fold­ing is 90 me­tres tall.

Fay, of ac­cess firm PHD Group, said: “It would be great to see more women en­ter­ing the trade. I love my job.

“It’s amaz­ing to work on some­where like Big Ben – and it means I stay fit while my mates have to go to the gym.”
