Local trades people are invited to apply

TV favourite DIY SOS is coming to Longfield.

The programme features presenter Nick Knowles, along with local building and construction experts.

They visit families and use their DIY skills to solve serious housing problems for those who have had a change in circumstances that means they now require major work - adapting homes for differently-abled family members, for example.

In the past, the team have built single and even double-storey extensions, installed wet rooms, stair lifts and completely renovated and redesigned homes from the garden to the loft.

Now they will be visiting Kent from October 14. Any trades people interested in getting involved can contact the show through the BBC website.
