Entries are now closed. The shortlist will be announced shortly!

Welcome to the UK Plumber of the Year website, where the search is back on to find the 2018 Pride of Plumbing

The competition was first launched in 2015 where our nationwide search found Josh Colbert, a multi-skilled plumber from Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire, as the worthy winner of the inaugural UK Plumber of the Year competition.

In 2016, Shaun Scott from Aberdeen picked up the crown and last year saw Wigan’s Drew Styles take home the accolade in a record-year for applications.

This year, we are going to break down the entries into six regions. Each regional representative will then take place in the final to take home the coveted crown – which means you have two chances to win!
