The Briggs & Forrester Group has recently been made a corporate member of the Worshipful Company of Plumbers, one of the most ancient of the livery companies of the City of London.
Duncan Benedetti, Corporate Liveryman for the Briggs & Forrester Group said, “It is an honour to be permitted into the Worshipful Company and it allows us to both support and benefit from the work it does in developing the next generation of plumbers and public health engineers.”
The Worshipful Company of Plumbers early aim was to look after the members belonging to the guild and to prevent unauthorised work being carried out by somebody from a different trade. They also behaved as an authority for plumbing standards, inspecting workmanship and issuing fines for bad workmanship.
The guild now has four main objectives which are Craft, City, Charity and Fellowship. They support and recognise individuals, organisations and institutions who achieve excellence in plumbing standards, such as Dan Martins who was awarded a student gold medal in July.
All members contribute towards the charitable and educational trust, providing bursaries and awards to support and encourage excellence in plumbing standards, education and technical development.
Briggs & Forrester Group are proud to have to have become one of a handful of corporate members.
