Here’s the nomination we received from Stu’s daughter-in-law, Sarah Goodfellow.
“I’d love to nominate my father-in-law Stu Ennis for being a good bugger. Every year he makes sure my wee family is always stocked with dry wood for the fire – he will even come around (limping and in pain pending a hip operation) any time of the day to help us around the house. Just last week he turned up to move a stack and stack out wood for this year. He is constantly putting the biggest smile on our daughter Chloe’s face; often Stu will bring his truck – a Volvo, he works for TNL – home just for Chloe to see. As you can tell in the picture she gets the driver’s seat and grandad’s in the passenger seat! With my Dad passing away when I was young it’s sure nice having a father-inlaw who helps with anything and it’s never an issue.”
Well done Stu! Superb effort and great bloke.

Could be anything from saving a plover and her chicks to helping you cover a load of dry timber when the wind's howling and the rain's threatening.
