HR and Payroll


"The Payroll department not only deal with the on-going payroll processing of the Appleby Westward staff," (says Clare Parkin, Appleby Westward's Payroll Co-ordinator) they also work with a large number of our retailers who outsource their payroll to Appleby Westward'.





Journeys to nearby towns and villages for Post Office and banking services have become a thing of the past for residents in Boscastle, North Cornwall after their local SPAR store came to the rescue.

Boscastle lost its local Post Office in June last year and with no banks in the village either, villagers have had to face up to a 30 minute round trip to Tintagel, Marshgate or Camelford for Post Office services and even further for banks.

But Becky Harrison and Iain Lewis, who run the SPAR store in Boscastle, have come to the rescue with the opening of a new Post Office Local Plus service in the shop. Local Plus offers an enhanced Post Office service, where customers can carry out everyday banking such as cash withdrawal, deposit and cheque deposit, along with special arrangements to support business customers, travel money and a wide range of Post Office and mail services.

"Our customers are delighted and very positive about the new facility," said Becky. "It has been a hassle for some of our older customers to make round trips to other places for these services.

It is the hub of the local community, offering services including the National Lottery, a free-to-use ATM and home delivery. A heart defibrillator was recently installed in the store by HeartSafe , the UK's leading provider of public access defibrillators. The machine offers a vital life-saving facility for people, providing a sense of security and confidence for the local community.
