Dorset Farmer Helps Choose Worker Of The Year
7:06am 6th October 2014
A Dorset farmer who was named last year's Worker of the Year has been helping to pick who's going to take her prestigious title.
Judi James from Littlebredy won the national competition that's run by workwear company Dickies and now is part of the judging panel.
She's been helping her fellow panellists narrow down the competition to this year's seven finalists with the winner being announced on the 18th October.
Judi told Wessex FM:
"The whole judging day really emphasised what hard work is all about. It felt great to be on the other side of the table, though I was still able to relate to how each finalist must be feeling. I thought they all did a brilliant job and made the judges decision incredibly difficult. It was all quite surreal, almost felt like I was handing over my baby."
The winner of this year's competition will be either a Suzuki S-Cross car, V Storm 1000 motorcycle or an ATV Quad bike.
