National Carpenters Day - 8 April 2011
Following the success of the event in 2010, the third annual National Carpenters Day in Australia promises to reach an even wider audience with new activities, national events, sponsors, partners and participants.
National Carpenters Day has been created to recognise the role of carpenters, their skills and the part they play in building. Australia-wide, the highlights of the day will be a series of free BBQ’s at participating suppliers’ premises and TAFEs.
Carpenters Day features a total prize pool of AU$60,000, which includes a $20,000 Jet-ski, package from Lockwood/Assa Abloy - plus there's plenty on offer for Carpenter of the Year and the Apprentice Carpenter of the Year.
“We’re proud that Wood. Naturally Better.™ is the major sponsor of National Carpenters Day,” said Ric Sinclair, managing director of Forest and Wood Products Australia, the industry services company behind the program. “Our research shows that an increasing number of Australians are keen to do something about climate change and they can do it by supporting carpenters and the use of sustainably sourced wood.”
