Skittery success runs in the genes

David Forde and James Skittery

Erudite and sophisticated though he is, UTC couldn’t resist a titter at the news in a press release that the Skittery brothers in Herefordshire have been crowned winners in Heineken’s Golden Apple Awards, 30 years after their father won the same prize. Skittery success obviously runs in the genes.

The Skittery brothers were said to be flushed with success. [Dear, oh dear… – Ed]

The Golden Apples have been a thing since 1968 and reward best practice among the farmers that supply apples for Heineken’s cider (or HP Bulmer’s as it was back then).
