Builders' merchant's winner flushed with success

Published:  24 February, 2011

NEWBURY: Through builders merchants FKS Buildbase, Lafarge Plasterboard has presented one lucky winner with a £3000 bathroom in a national GTEC Aqua Board competition.

The competition was open to anyone who bought Lafarge Plasterboard’s GTEC Aqua board from participating builders merchants over a given period. The winner, Neil Weight, was selected from hundreds of entrants across the UK.

Neil Weight, who owns Newbury-based NC Weight Heating and Plumbing and fits high-end bathrooms across Berkshire and Oxfordshire, commented: “I buy over 40 sheets of Lafarge’s GTEC Aqua Board a month because it is the best product for the job. It’s easy to use and cost efficient, plus it’s strong enough to hold heavy items such as off-the-floor toilets.

“Until FKS Buildbase rang to tell me about my prize I’d forgotten about the draw. It was great news as I don’t usually win anything.”

The prize was presented at FKS Buildbase in Newbury, Berkshire by Mike Cocks, at Lafarge Plasterboard and Steve Martin, manager at FKS Buildbase in Newbury.
