DO you know a talented plumber?

WaterSafe is calling on them to enter a prestigious competition to be crowned UK Plumber of the Year 2019.

The national register for approved plumbers is returning to the competition as an official judging parter and is urging any proud plumbers from Runcorn and Widnes to enter the competition by Friday, June 28.

Qualified plumbers can apply online and all they need to do is include details of a job they are most proud of to be in with a chance of winning a prize worth £15,000.

Once the deadline is up, WaterSafe will shortlist 10 plumbers who will face a public vote to be in with a chance of reaching the final.

Founding director and chairman of WaterSafe Chris Sneath said: "I’m delighted to return for the third time to the judging panel of this competition.

"I’m on the lookout for the perfect blend of professionalism, competence and practical skill. An impressive combination that led us to last year’s winner – WaterSafe member Steve Bartin.

"If you’re a skilled, qualified plumber – or know one among your friends, family or colleagues – there’s still plenty of time to enter the competition.”

Organised by JT, Bristan and Wolseley, plumbers can apply online via
