Women in Roofing Call for Nominations for Two New Awards

Women in Roofing (WinR), the organisation for promoting the diversity and image of UK roofing, is inviting entries from two categories of people working in the UK roofing sector – young people and more experienced professionals – for two new awards.

The Awards – which have been launched in honour of two well-known and widely-respected women in roofing who sadly passed away last year: Maureen Johnson and Ellie Coulter – are now open for nominations with a closing date of 28th February, 2018.

Nomination entries are easy to complete using the form on the WinR website.
