Michelle, who works as a customer service assistant, was also presented with a bouquet of flowers, a bottle of champagne and a £250 cheque as a thank you for her dedication over the years.

"I can't believe how quickly time has flown since joining the company and that's the result of working with a great team full of different personalities.
"The store has changed and grown dramatically since I started and I feel privileged to have met so many good people over the past 25 years."
Mark Stansbury, store manager, said: "We were all really keen to congratulate Michelle on her loyalty and commitment to the company.
"Michelle is a key part of the team – she's always friendly and she's a huge hit with the customers.
"It's a pleasure to be able to show our gratitude and appreciation for all her hard work."
