HVP Magazine – Female plumbing skills competition winner announced




HIP has announced the winner of its first-ever Female Skills Competition.

Two regional competitions were held in February and March to find the best up-and-coming talent in the industry. Female plumbing and heating students of all ages, grades 2 and 3 from colleges across the country competed in a hands-on live installation for a chance to win a seat in the grand finals.

The finals took place at Loughborough College last week on March 30th, where six finalists competed to be crowned the HIP Female Skills 2023 winner.

Group Llandrillo Menai’s Tiffany Baker was named the 2023 HIP Female Skills Winner and Bath College’s Adelaide Ruddy was announced as the runner-up.

Chris Penney, director of the LIXIL EMENA GIVE program at Grohe, said: “The standard of work was very high. We want to get more women involved in the plumbing industry and set new industry standards with our products and the people who install them. It is important that we bridge this gender gap.”

Zoë Tanner, Managing Director of HIP, said: “Congratulations to everyone who took part. You should be very proud of yourself. It was an absolute honor to see the next generation of female plumbers demonstrate their skills.”
