Our first PLP Christmas Fire Safety event took place on 5th December, and was a huge success. We were delighted to welcome so many people from across the block management sector, who took time to learn about this important subject.
Throughout the day we raised awareness of the importance of:
- Third Party Accreditation
- What to look for when appointing a contractor to carry out fire safety works
- User responsibilities and innovations.
Hosted at London’s ExCeL Exhibition Centre, a Christmas lunch was enjoyed by all, followed by a fantastic raffle and guess the number of balloons in our freshly branded PLP Hybrid car. We are proud to have raised an amazing £250 for our nominated charity Mind Kent.
Following the fantastic feedback we received there will be more events coming up. To be added to our guest list, or for more information, please sign up using the form on this page.
