Congratulations to our brilliant colleague Bev Tolley from our Blackwood store who's worked for Asda for 25 years.

To celebrate her magnicent milestone Bev was joined in the store by her daughter Sara and Sara's partner Gareth, who both work at our Cwmbran store, and their baby daughter Alana.

Bev, who’s 54, spent the majority of her time with Asda at the Cwmbran store before becoming people trading manager at Blackwood.

She was one of the thousands of colleagues from across the UK who attended the Big Asda Anniversary event to celebrate their long service.

Bev said: "Sara was born in 1991 and I joined Asda in October 1992. I absolutely love my job and it was lovely to get everyone together for the photo. My son Paul also worked at the Cwmbran store for a while too.

“I had an absolutely fabulous day at the Big Asda Anniversary. They really took care of us and I felt appreciated and valued – I even got invited on stage with my colleagues by Claudia Winkelman!”

Sara said: "I really enjoy my job and it's fair to say that Asda has played a very important role in our family!

"Before Alana was born all of the colleagues were really excited, and when she was born in March they were all messaging me to and asking me to bring her in so they could meet her. It's lovely that I could bring her in to meet everyone."

Our Blackwood store's community champion Lucie Brown said: "Bev is really friendly, bubbly and approachable and it was lovely to get the family together and for colleagues to meet Alana."
