BOSSES at a Huddersfield firm have made it a happy new year for one employee.

Paul Burns, who works for Decorative Panels, Crosland Road, Oakes, picked up a Rover 25 car worth £10,000 when his number was drawn in a scheme to reward workers for excellent attendance.

Decorative Panels employs more than 200 people and is Europe's largest producer of paper foil laminated board for use by trade furniture manufacturers.

The company started the scheme to encourage staff morale and maintain attendance levels.
