There was something of a busman’s holiday feel to a gift chosen by a worker to mark his long service.

James Thomson aptly requested an electric log cutter in recognition of 10 years’ service with Belford-based BEDMAX, which produces dust-free pine shavings for stabled horses. They are also used by farmers during lambing and gamekeepers raising pheasant chicks.

James was presented with his gift from managing director Tim Smalley, who said: “I am delighted to make this presentation to James for his hard work and commitment during the last 10 years.

“He is a good example of the excellent team of staff across the company and it is because of the staff that BEDMAX, as a company, is where it is today.”

There are 54 employees working across the company’s three production plants.
