Voting for the 2018 Milk and More Milkman or Woman of the Year is now open and competition organisers want Banbury residents votes.
Organised by the nation’s largest doorstep milk delivery service, the competition recognises and rewards the very best Milk and More milkmen and women from across the country.
Milk and More is inviting its Banbury customers to explain in 30 words or less why their local milkman or woman is deserving of recognition.
All customers have to do to nominate their chosen milkman or woman is fill in the entry form which will be delivered through their door or visit www.milkandmore.co.uk/MOTY.
Patrick Mueller, MD of Milk and More, said: “Our milkmen and women are an integral part of their local communities and we are working hard to ensure this great British tradition will be here for generations to come.
“This competition is a chance for people to let their local Milk & More milkmen and women know what an important role they play in the community.”
Last year’s Milk and More Milkman of the Year winner, Darren Barnes, was nominated for “always going the extra mile” for his customers, many of whom he refers to as family.
A milkman for more than 30 years, Darren’s concern for his local community and keen observational skills have resulted in him raising the alarm in times of trouble.
Deadline for Milkman of the Year submissions is October 6, with regional winners being announced on October 23. The overall winner will be announced in November.
In addition to delivering fresh British milk in iconic one pint glass bottles, Milk and More has embraced the 21st century by offering online ordering of a range of dairy products including cheese, granola, butter and biscuits from artisan British suppliers.
