Yvonne Watmuff, from Liversedge, works on the customer service desk at the store and has spent most of this last year meeting and greeting customers at the front entrance as part of the firm’s commitment to ensure a safe shopping trip during the Covid pandemic.

A spokesman said: “Summer sunshine through to winter snow storms, Yvonne has remained upbeat and positive with a smile on her face, ready to greet customers.

“She started back on February 13, 1981, going to the then Hillards store for a trial and getting the job the following day.

“Yvonne has been awarded with a long service gift card from the company and also gifts from the store.”
