Two Wilko forklift truck drivers have been recognised among the best in the world at the Talent in Logistics Awards 2017.
Dale Smith and Kris Scarborough, who live in Retford and who both work at Wilko’s distribution centre in Worksop, were runners up in the International Forklift Operator of the Year category at the prestigious industry awards last week.
Both were commended for their talents, and Kris Scarborough was awarded the runner up prize.
