Screwfix unveils billboard to support Top Tradesperson winner in his hometown

Screwfix Top Tradesperson champion, Toby Peacock, is preparing to see his name (and face) in light in his hometown, Cambridge, after a 6X3m digital billboard has been unveiled outside Cambridge Football Club.

The coveted award, which celebrates the very best of those working in the trades, saw the local electrician and owner of Down to Earth Electrical stand out among nine other high-calibre tradespeople from across the UK and Ireland. Toby Peacock was announced as Screwfix Top Tradesperson champion at the final, hosted by a panel of industry experts, held at Screwfix LIVE in Farnborough, on 23 September.

Toby wowed the judges with his professionalism and dedication to the trade and walked away with an ultimate trade bundle consisting of £20,000 worth of tools, technology, and future training.

The unveiling of the digital billboard is a first for the retailer and further cements their role in supporting tradespeople like Toby.

Speaking at the unveiling, Toby commented: “The support Screwfix has already given me following my win has been incredible. As part of the competition, I received an incredible £20,000 worth prize bundle, but to see my face and business outside my hometown football club really has been the cherry on the top for me. It will raise awareness of Down to Earth Electrical in my local area, helping me to attract new customers and grow my business further.”

Jack Wallace, Marketing Director at Screwfix added: “Now in its thirteenth year, the Screwfix Top Tradesperson competition continues to go from strength to strength, shining a light on the very best of those working across the trades and the extra lengths they go to support their customers, as well as their local communities. The billboard we’ve unveiled today not only celebrates Toby’s huge achievement in being recognised as Screwfix’s 2022 Top Tradesperson, but also the important role of tradespeople within our local communities, something we at Screwfix are incredibly passionate about championing.”

Screwfix Top Tradesperson has been running for 13 years, celebrating the experts of the trade in the UK and Ireland and highlighting their professionalism, dedication, and exceptional skills.
