The winner of KME Yorkshire’s Tube Talk newsletter competition is already saving time and money with his prize - an iPod Touch.

Roger Constable, of RP Constable Plumbing and Heating in Essex, has been a subscriber to the copper tubing giant’s twice yearly publication since it launched in 2007. He entered the competition after seeing it in the digital version of Tube Talk which made its online debut early in 2012.

He has been using KME Yorkshire’s brand Yorkshire Copper Tube since he started his business more than 30 years ago.

Roger has been busy getting to grips with his iPod Touch and has already downloaded the Gas Rating app, which allows him to quickly and easily work out how much gas a boiler uses, a process which can otherwise be very time consuming.

After correctly answering the question: In what colour is Kuterlex Plus available, which was white, Roger’s name was chosen at random from hundreds of entries and Yorkshire’s Business Manager for the South East, Mike Sykes, hand-delivered the prize.

Roger said: “I have been reading Tube Talk since it launched and was really pleased to see that it has moved to email and an online version. It means I can dip in and out and the short stories and bullet points mean that I can get quick updates anytime I want.

“It was the first time I had entered a Tube Talk competition as it was a simple process that I could complete there and then, but I didn’t think for one minute that I would win.

“I was very surprised to hear that I had won as I have never won a competition before, I can’t even remember the last time I won £10 on the lottery!

“The iPod Touch will come in handy time and time again at work and I can also use it during my leisure time too.”

Neil Overton, Commercial Director at KME Yorkshire, said: “We had a fantastic response to our digital version of Tube Talk and everyone we have spoken to has commented on how user friendly and informative it is.

“We like to say thank you to our loyal readers by offering them a chance to win something that will come in useful whilst they are working and we are delighted to hear that Roger is already saving time, which also means he is saving money!

“We are currently working on the next edition of Tube Talk and anyone that wants to sign up to receive it can simply email .”

Tube Talk was launched in 2007 and now has more than 11,000 readers ranging from plumbers to merchants to educational establishments and apprentices.

It was given a digital makeover in early 2012 and offers the same great content with all the latest news and product information but is much more dynamic and interactive.
