Dan & Jack’s trainer, Alan Lander said;
The event was huge attracting a record number of visitors this year. I would like to express my thanks to Dan and Jack’s employers, Marnick Roofing and Wheeler Roofing Services, for granting the lads time to compete in this year’s heats and subsequently the final. Also my thanks to both Dan and Jack for their tremendous efforts and I wish them every success for a future in roof slating & tiling. Well done boys!
Simon Dixon, one of the judges, commented;
To the rest of the competitors – in any other year, everyone of you could have had a place, just a tremendously high standard this year.
