The Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors (APHC) is encouraging installers to come together to support its annual campaign Quality Plumber Week, running this year from October 3-9.
Quality Plumber Week celebrates the work of the UK’s professional plumbing and heating installers, emphasising the vital role they play in the community. The week will also be encouraging more school leavers to enrol on a plumbing apprenticeship as a route into a respected and future-proof career, with 86% of people surveyed by APHC believing that young people should be encouraged to consider an apprenticeship as an alternative to university.
With less than two weeks to go until the launch of the campaign, plumbers can pledge their support and shout about their quality with downloadable resources from the Quality Plumber Week area of the website, including a template release for plumbers and suppliers to distribute to their local press, suggested social media links, plumbing factoids and more information.
During the week, APHC will also be running a Mega Trade Giveaway, encouraging installers to retweet any APHC post or tweet about why they’re backing #QPW16 to be in with the chance of winning prizes at the end of the week.
One winner will receive an AKW Wet Room Kit, an ADEY MagnaCleanse Kit, a Worcester Bosch Professional Cordless Hammer Drill, a Vokera BeSMART thermostat, a Klober Wakaflex roofing flashing roll, an Intatec Puro Bar Shower and Overhead Kit, a Sharkbite Starter Kit and Merlyn Ionic Express Shower Enclosure.
