What a fantastic year we have had over at The Plasterers Forum® and at Plasterers News™ we have had one of those years that you could not imagine being possible, and we have seen the launch of some of the great tools and materials.
The Plasterers Forum saw its busiest ever year, and we reached a massive 24,000 members, and that is still growing day and day out, which is fantastic.
Plasterers News saw its first birthday, and the growth of the site has far exceeded all expectations of myself, and the site sponsors with record breaking visitors each month, which is brilliant.
The Plasterers Forum is a great place for plasterers and like-minded people all over the UK and much further afield meet and connect and with members passing work around to other members, and we are seeing a large number of people using the site to find local plasterers as well.
So let’s go back through and remind you what has been happening in 2014…
