Martin Warnes, from Essex, has been crowned the 2019 UK Plumber of the Year, in the nationwide competition run by JT, Bristan and Wolseley UK.
The 2019 competition saw over 400 plumbers enter from across the country, with Martin taking not only the crown but also the £15,000 prize pot. Martin’s success was announced this week at national heating and plumbing trade show, Installer Scotland.
A judging panel made up of experts from JT, Bristan, Wolseley UK as well as Official Judging Partner, Watersafe, shortlisted ten plumbers across the UK based on their skills, qualifications and experience. The top ten then went head-to-head to win public votes where the five individuals with the highest number of votes went through to the final stage.
