Newbury carpenter shortlisted for top tradesman award
A CARPENTER from Newbury has been shortlisted in a competition to find Britain’s top tradesman.
Jason Stockwell, aged 25, has seen off competition from tradesmen and women across the region in the annual search by Screwfix, and is now in with a chance of getting through to the National final.
Mr Stockwell, who trades under his own name said: “I started in carpentry straight out of school, and have never looked back.
“Whilst I was at college I was awarded a place on The Princes Foundation for the Built Environment Bursary Apprenticeship, which was one of the proudest moments of my life. It gave me the opportunity to travel the UK, learning from some of the best in the business. My passion is to provide the best service and quality craftsmanship to my customers that I can.
“When I got the call that I was through to the regional final I was delighted.
“I’m really looking forward to judging day and hope to do my best for carpenters everywhere by getting through to the final.”
Screwfix marketing director John Mewett, said: “Along with our other regional finalists, he has demonstrated his willingness to go the extra mile to get the job done.”
Mr Stockwell will compete in the regional final tomorrow today at the Portsmouth Screwfix store.
