Congratulations to checkouts colleague Andrew Watson from our Stenhousemuir store who's been invited to turn on the town's Christmas lights this year.
Twenty-five-year-old Andrew, who was Asda's 2019 Customer Colleague of the Year after receiving 400 votes from regulars at the store, will switch on the lights on December 3.
He said: "I really can't believe it – it's such a great honour and such a good feeling. My mum, Marjorie, works in the store too, and she is so proud. She just said 'no way!' when I told her.
"I'm really looking forward to it. I love Christmas, especially having all the family around.
"The lights switch-on is just up the road from the store so not too far for me to walk."
The switch-on is being organised by KLSB (Keeping Larbert & Stenhousemuir Beautiful) Community Group in conjunction with Falkirk Delivers.
Asda Stenhousemuir's community champion Hazel Culbert says the whole store is proud of Andrew, who's well known for his endless enthusiasm and energy.
She said: "The community group who deals with festivities in the area agreed that they wanted someone who everyone knew and was from within the community so they chose Andrew. He's so well known and recognised."
