With the WorldSkills 2017 final in Abu Dhabi fast approaching, anticipation is rising for the UK Tiling Team. On Thursday 7th September, Schlüter-Systems caught up with them at the Greenbank Campus of Southern Regional College, Northern Ireland (SRC), to hand-deliver a couple of gifts prior to the start of this prestigious competition.

As a forum we've always promoted Tiling Courses in one way or another. Over the years we've had a fair few companies on the forum, whether as sponsors or just regular posting members. We in fact started out with Ant from [caption id="attachment_423" align="alignleft" width="300"] Tiling Courses[/caption] Chase Tiling Academy, and he did help the forum grow quite quickly back in 2006 and 2007. (Sadly they're not around anymore.)
