A great time for change

Since opening our doors in 1969 a lot has changed in the way customers improve their homes. Now at 50, we’re embracing those changes by launching new ideas to make home improvement simpler, more affordable and sustainable.


A great time for 50 community projects

To help mark our 50th anniversary we’ve been busy completing 50 good home community projects across the UK & Ireland.

Each of our regions have recruited a team of colleagues – donning their signature orange aprons – to undertake a host of home improvement projects for local charities and community initiatives.

We’ve been painting, planting, tiling, flooring, building, decking and assembling, creating good homes and better spaces for all those who use these vital community services.

Take a look at the great work our colleagues have been doing up and down the country in our celebratory film or take a deep-dive into our project at Ronald McDonald House Southampton.


50th Anniversary

To mark the occasion of our 50th Anniversary, we’ve created a short film. Presented by writer and broadcaster, Tom Dyckhoff.

Tom is joined by B&Q colleagues as he looks back at the changes in home improvement from the last 50 years and looks to the future ambitions of B&Q.
