B&Q launches project demo's

April 16 will see B&Q launch a series of project demos focusing on DIY jobs that can be completed in one weekend.

The launch comes under B&Q's 'Doing it Together' commitment, encouraging DIY shy Brits to overcome their fears and make DIY easier.

The home improvement retailer found that 53% of Brits are scared of DIY and four in ten would say they hated it.

Each of the demos are one hour long and will focus on showing people the basic skills and tools needed to carry out a DIY task. They will run until Sunday May 8.

The first session will be on 'how to lay laminate flooring' taking place twice on Saturday April 16. Other demonstrations include how to make a hanging basket, growing your own and building a deck or walkway.

B&Q's marketing direction Katherine Paterson said: "We're passionate about DIY and this Easter we want to make it easier for our customers to have a go themselves. Whether you have a whole weekend or just half an hour, there are so many jobs you can do and we look forward to welcoming customers into store and getting the nation DIYing again."
