HR and Payroll


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



Tidworth Council Hold Olympic Event

Appleby Westward stepped in and supplied the wine when Tidworth Council in Wiltshire hosted an evening event after four Olympic torch bearers passed through the town.

Chris Franklin, who is operations manager for Andrew Connolly at his four SPAR stores in the area, is also the Mayor of Tidworth and approached Appleby Westward for support when the evening event was being planned.

Up to 100 guests attended the event at Tedworth House, the flagship for Help for Heroes. There are five UK-wide Personnel Recovery Centres which form the Defence Recovery Capability (DRC).

The DRC is a Ministry of Defence initiative set up to ensure that a comprehensive pathway is established to help the wounded and sick launch back into the next phase of their lives.

Vince Brown, Head of Sales, said: “It was a very humbling experience to meet the service personnel that are rehabilitating after being severely injured in Afghanistan and it was a proud moment to see our logo and SPAR banner as you entered the event, along with the great applause during the speeches for SPAR when it was announced we were a sponsor.”

During the day, as the torch came through the town, an event was put on in the Esso field which included stalls, a fun fair, a musical talent competition, beer tent, hog roast, and a football competition.
