Female Plumbers Defy Stereotypes

People who believe plumbing is a man's job should think again as a couple of young female plumbers are already enjoying success.

Hollie Webb is relishing reaching the final 20 of the BBC 3 television competition Young Plumber of the Year after being nominated by her bosses due to her excellent plumbing abilities.

Ms Webb, from Northwich, has been in the plumbing industry for five years despite only being 24-years-old and was one of only two women to make the top 20 of the national contest.

Hollie said they she still gets comments from customers about working in a male dominated profession but she is proud of her achievements such as completing plumbing courses at such a young age.

Tunbridge Wells teenager Lilly Godley-Miller is hoping to follow in the footsteps of Hollie by securing a role as an apprentice plumber with a local plumbing company.

Lilly decided to apply for an apprenticeship after completing the City & Guilds NVQ 6129 level 2 plumbing courses.
