Swarfega’s Toughest Trade of the year has been voted for by the public following a hard-fought battle on social media, with fisherman Jack West announced victorious.
Vying for the top spot in Swarfega’s coveted Toughest Trade Award, tradespeople across Britain sent in pictures of their toughest task since the competition launched on Blue Monday in January.
Giving his trade a tough name, fisherman Jack West scooped the title of Toughest Tradesperson 2021, winning a £200 Amazon voucher as well as some serious respect. Jack’s entry came out on top after a total voter turnout of over 700 people, as it showed a stomach-churning image of a fishing boat getting battered by the waves.
There were strong entries from across the trades, making the task of choosing a winner challenging for voters. The runners-up were electrician Neil Wadsworth, telegraph pole engineer Johnny Liggett, and roofer Richard Revell.
