Posted on May 01, 2019

The annual Apprentice Skills Contest took centre stage at the 2019 PICAC Brunswick’s World Plumbing Day celebration on Friday, 8 March. World Plumbing Day, March 11, aims to spread awareness of the importance of plumbing and plumbers in protecting public health and improving amenity.
