A farm shop employee has won a top award for a second time.
Jasmine Lowe, from Tean, has won an Apprentice of the Year Award for the second time whilst working at Denstone Hall Farm Shop and Café and also completing her level 3 apprenticeship at Buxton & Leek College.
Speaking about her time at Denstone Hall Farm Shop and Café, Jasmine said: “I’ve found it really interesting, it’s been a very hands on experience.
“I’ve managed to also work in the office along with being in the cafe so I can see both sides of the business.
“I’m now in a supervisory position at the farm shop and I’m working in the café within that position.”
Regarding winning the award for a second time, Jasmine said: “I was completely shocked, I didn’t know I was nominated at all so I’m humbled and so grateful for the opportunity.”
Since she began her time at Denstone Hall Farm Shop and Café, Jasmine has been gaining new skills and has impressed her employers with her motivation and commitment to her job, leading to her winning her first award presented by Stoke-On-Trent College in 2020.
The owners of Denstone Hall Farm Shop and Café, Rupert and Emma Evans, are also incredibly proud of Jasmine for her achievements.
Rupert said: “We couldn’t be more pleased for Jasmine who has been a valued member of our team for over seven years.
“She has worked so hard throughout her apprenticeship and thoroughly deserves this wonderful accolade.
“We’ve had some great successes with apprentices at Denstone Hall and hope to continue developing young talent within the business in the years to come.
“I dare say Jasmine will be mentoring the next generation before we know it.”
Looking forward to her blossoming career path, Jasmine added: “Long term I do want my own business one day, I’d love to have my own farm shop or restaurant, but until then I just want to work my way into different positions and gaining more experience.”
