Canterbury's Andrew Bright has taken out the 2019 Plumbing World Young Plumber of the Year contest

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

After working at Plumbing World during his gap year, the 28-year-old has been with Warwick Kirwan Plumbing for six years and credits his boss for much of his success.

While he had not intended to make a career out of plumbing, Bright has no regrets and would love to encourage more young people to consider trades as an option while they are at school.

Congratulations Andrew!

The physical and psychological pain these horses suffer is immense, with the movement against horse racing growing as animal welfare advocates call for change. What do you think? Should horse racing be banned? Vote in the poll below.
