Stopcocks has announced further detailed about the Women Installers Together conference ahead of the event's launch on 4 July.

The event, organised by Stopcocks and Polypipe Building Products, aims to support those women who are part of the plumbing and gas fitting industries.

With only an estimated 1 per cent of installers across the UK being female and just 500 women on the Gas Safe Register, the Women Installers Together conference hopes to raise the profile of issues that affect female plumbers and gas engineers.

Headline speakers include Olympian Anna Hemmings MBE and Hattie Hasan founder of Stopcocks. An intensive training session will once again be provided by Polypipe’s Jazz Wilson.

Female attendees will be encouraged to be 'Famous for Five Minutes' and tell their own stories.

A raffle will also take place, and prizes include:

  • A weekend break in a luxury cabin fitted with Polypipe Underfloor Heating and a hot tub
  • A Starrett plumbers hole saw kit
  • 1 pair of Hoydens Women’s Work trousers
  • 10 x Fluxuators
  • Big Wipes
  • The Joy of Plumbing by Hattie Hasan

Doors open at 9.30am with the event closing at 4pm.

The venue is The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, Fitzrovia, London, WC1E 7BT.
