We were invited to Guru Nanak Sikh Gurdwara in Walsall. It was an incredible experience and we were made to feel most welcome. As well as offering a place of worship, the temple also offers free meals to anyone that choses to worship there. The Gurdwara was so colourful and bright and everyone was so very friendly.
We recently said a fond farewell to home delivery colleague Pat Rogers, who is retiring from work. Pat had worked at Asda St Matthews since the store opened in June 2007. She was really sad to be leaving and she will be missed by the entire store but everyone celebrated her retirement and Pat has promised to keep in touch.
Asda St Matthews community life champion Martin Bateman organised a community litter pick in the grounds surrounding St Matthews Church. Volunteers turned up throughout the day and we were supported by the Prince's Trust, Keyring, Accord Housing, local residents and Asda colleagues. The day was launched by the Mayor of Walsall Cllr Peter Smith. In total we collected 75 bin liners of litter, a video recorder, handbag, keyboard, hoover, two buckets and 12 needles. A brilliant project and a great day.
Colleagues at Asda St Matthews wanted to do an ice bucket challenge with a difference. We teamed up with Walsall fire brigade who made an ice pool from extendable ladders and then used 2 hoses and numerous buckets to make sure the colleagues were well and truly soaked and incredibly cold.
St Matthews have teamed up with the Prince's Trust to organise a series of community projects that benefits the people of Walsall. One of the community projects was to do a brook clearance in Walsall Arboretum where empty bottles, plastic bags, hazard cones and a wooden chair were among the rubbish collected. The Prince's Trust students worked incredibly hard but a lot of fun was had on the day.
