Covers to host Gosport challenge for 175th anniversary

TO CELEBRATE the Covers Timber & Builders Merchant’s 175th anniversary, its Gosport depot is inviting customers and members of the community to join the team for an Anniversary Challenge & Demonstration Morning on Friday, September 23.

Between 7.30am and 1pm, visitors to the depot can speak to suppliers from fastening specialist Spax, plasterboard and ceiling manufacturer British Gypsum, paving supplier Bradstone, outdoor composite decking specialist Millboard, insulation manufacturer Rockwool, speciality adhesives company Sika, and leading hand and power tool distributor Toolbank.

Throughout the event, each supplier will be encouraging customers to complete various challenges for the chance to win up to £175 worth of Love2Shop gift cards. Customers will also be able to enjoy a free hog roast and a drink.

All those taking part in the challenges will have the chance to become one of Covers’ Challenge Champions. Those with the highest score for each challenge at the end of the demonstration morning will be added to a league table of participants from all Covers depots.

Celebratory Anniversary Challenge & Demonstration Mornings continue at Covers’ depots throughout the year. The contestant who remains at the top of the board for each challenge after the last trade day of the year will become a Covers Challenge Champion. Prizes for being top of the league include a Cello Notepad, Apple Watch, Apple iPad, 50-inch 4K TV, a Bose speaker and a £250 Love2shop gift voucher.
