TIME is running out for hard-working tradesmen and women to take part in a competition to find Britain’s top plumber.

The UK Plumber of the Year contest aims to increase awareness of the excellent tradesmanship being offered to customers.

A prize pot worth £10,000 is being provided by bathroom giants JT, Bristan and Plumb Center.

To enter, plumbers need to outline one job they’ve completed that they believe stands out as a hallmark of the quality of their work.

Once the final deadline for entries has closed, official judging partner for the competition WaterSafe will select a shortlist of 15 plumbers, who will then go head to head in a bid to win public votes.

In the final stage, five finalists will present to a judging panel, who will then select the overall winner of the 2017 competition.
