The press are constantly telling us ( and the statistics unfortunately support them) that DIY Skills are no longer being handed down from Father to Son or Daughter.

We are sure this is not true of everyone and we intend to prove it at the DIY Dad of the year competition at Earls Court’s Ideal Home show this weekend.

At 14.30 on Sunday 20th March Celebrity Architect George Clarke and DIY Doctor’s Mike Edwards will take to the stage to offer simple quiz papers to all would-be contestants. The owners of the top three quiz papers will be invited onto the stage to perform three manual DIY jobs.

George and Mike will be overseeing these tasks with words of encouragement, advice and (almost innevitably) a few jokes.

There are many prizes available which have been kindly donated by B&Q, Dulux and Black & Decker. There are also Test Match Tickets up for grabs and expensive tool kits to be won.

Join us on stage on sunday and help decide the DIY Dad of the year for 2011.

We look forward to seeing you there.
