MILKMAN David Watson, aged 30, of Beighton, has been named the cream of the crop.

Nominated by his customers in Beighton, Totley, Killamarsh and North Nottinghamshire for his devotion to the job and community and his cheery smile, he won Milkman of the Year 2011 in a competition run by Dairy UK.

David, who starts work each day at 2am, said: “I have built up a great rapport with my customers over the years.

“They are more like friends and, because I start my round so early in the morning, I am the eyes and ears of the community. The best thing about being a milkman is definitely my customers. I really am over the moon!”
