Screwfix are calling for North Devon Tradesmen to enter this years Britain’s Top Tradesman competition.

BARNSTAPLE’S Screwfix store is now accepting entries for the company’s annual competition to find and recognise Britain’s Top Tradesman.

The award is given to those who can prove they excel in their business.

Entries are open until 14 September when the regional finalists will be decided.

These will then go head to head in October before the national final takes place in November.

The winner will carry a title that could transform their business and Screwfix are also throwing in the keys to a brand new £28,000 Toyota van for good measure.

Last years winner, Tom Ball, has said that the award has had an amazing impact on his business.

John Mewett, marketing director at Screwfix, said, “We run this competition to reward quality tradesmen and to celebrate their success.

“The regional rounds of BTT enable people working in the trade to meet up, share ideas and tell us about what’s happening on the ground.”

Entries can be submitted in any Screwfix store or online at
