Tradesmen and women in South Shields could be with a chance of being named Britain’s Top Tradesperson (BTT).
Screwfix, which has a store in South Shields, is launching its annual competition to find and recognise the best builders, extraordinary electricians, helpful handymen, perfect plumbers and many more tradesmen and women that keep homes and businesses in top condition.
Not only will this year’s worthy winner carry the title of Britain’s Top Tradesperson that will transform their business – but they will also win the keys to a brand new Toyota Proace or Hilux worth £30,000, with all the gadgets they need.
Last year, plumber Raymond McKnight, walked away with the crown after fighting off worthy competition from thousands of entrants.
He wowed a judging panel with his passion and dedication to his trade.
He saids “It has been an unbelievable year. Holding the title of Britain’s Top Tradesperson has been a great endorsement for me.
“When customers see that someone in the local area has been named as top in the UK, they know they can rely on you to do a top job.”
The Britain’s Top Tradesperson Award is given to those who can prove they excel in their trade.
Entries to BTT are open until October 4, with regional finalists going head to head later that month.
The national final will be in November, with the overall winner being named Britain’s Top Tradesperson 2015.
