TRADESPEOPLE from Warrington can put themselves forward for the Britain's Top Tradesperson award with a chance to win a £20,000 prize.

Screwfix, which was a store based in Kerfoot Street, has opened the competition to plumbers, electricians, builders and carpenters from the town to celebrate their work.

The winner will receive a £20,000 trade bundle, comprising of £10,000 worth of tools, £5,000 of technology and £5,000 to go towards future training.

Screwfix will shortlist the UK’s top tradespeople to take part in a semi-final, before picking the top 10 finalists, who will travel to Farnborough to meet a panel of judges.

Caroline Welsh, director of brand and marketing at Screwfix said: "As Screwfix celebrates the 10th anniversary of Britain’s Top Tradesperson, our goal is to find someone who is the embodiment of their trade.

"The search is on to crown someone who not only champions their trade, but also acts as an ambassador to help future-proof the industry and encourage future generations.

"Since we launched the competition in 2009, we have seen record levels of entrants year on year and we are excited to see what this year has to offer.

"We know from talking to our trade customers how much they enjoy taking part, and with such strong competition we will be looking for one high calibre individual."

Entries are open until August 4, 2019 and can be made by visiting the Screwfix
