THE search is on to find the best tradesperson in Widnes.

Open to plumbers, electricians, builders and carpenters, the competition from Screwfix will award the best tradesperson with £10,000 worth of tools, £5,000 of technology and £5,000 to go towards training.

All they have to do is fill in an online form and tell Screwfix why they deserve the title of Britain's Best Tradesperson.

Screwfix judges will then create a shortlist of the top 10 finalists who will then 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 futureproof 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”
