Timms runs his own company called H Timms Tree Management and is a lead climber and site foreman. His job involves tree removals, tree reductions, cutting hedges and site clearance.

He attended Brands Hatch over the weekend, along with five other finalists vying to become UK Worker of the Year, a competition run by globally recognised workwear brand Dickies. He was announced in joint fourth place, behind eventual winner Katie Washbourne, and runners up Paul Middleton and Rebecca Rowlands.

Timms commented: "It’s been a great weekend and I really enjoyed my UK Worker of the Year experience. The other five finalists were all brilliant, and I cannot fault any decisions made by the judges. I’d like to thank Dickies again for this great opportunity."
