Tim Whiting, from Saxmundham, attended the regional heat at Thetford’s Screwfix store on Monday – and will find out whether he has made the national final next month.

Trading as Suffolk Millwright, Mr Whiting, 36, said he had the determination, passion and attitude to help him win the prestigious title and a new Mitsubishi L200 Warrior pick-up truck, worth £33,000.

“It’s incredibly rewarding to be recognised for the hard work that I put in, and I’m determined to show my dedication to the trade and my customers,” he added.

Mr Wright is one of only 12 professional millwrights in the UK, working across the country to restore some of the UK’s historic windmills.

Britain’s Top Tradesperson is Screwfix’s search for the best builders, plumbers, electricians and more.
