Craig Phillips featured on This Morning on 1st April in a special feature undertaking a range of simple DIY tasks. In recent weeks it has been reported that many people are not as skilled at DIY which has resulted in the decline of stores including Homebase and B&Q. Craig believes that the basic skills of DIY are not being passed down from generation to generation as much as they were in the past.
He commented: “People are not buying houses until later in life and do not need to learn the skills to maintain their homes. When people rent a place, it is the landlord’s responsibility to make sure everything is in order.
“Despite this, I believe that everyone has the ability to learn basic skills, and the internet provides thousands of hours of online tutorials so people do not have to rely upon being taught in person.”
