ASDA Sw11tches to Battersea!

ASDA Clapham Junction is unveiling a new name on Monday to support the SW11tch Back to Battersea Campaign. The new store name is ‘ASDA Clapham Junction Battersea’ and ‘SW11tch Back to Battersea’ co-chairman, Philip Beddows, will be on hand to unveil the store’s new banner, proudly displaying the store’s name and Battersea’s identity.

Also celebrating the move will be some of the store’s longest serving colleagues from Battersea. Clamount Forde (72), Valerie Gale (69), Gamini Attanayake (68), Brenda South (67) and Rodney Thompson (65), are the store’s golden oldies, who may be over 65 but are incredibly important to the store for their experience and selflessness. AS long term residents, they also are keen to get Clapham Junction recognised as being at the heart of Battersea.

General Store Manager, Andrew Holmes, said: “I’m delighted that ASDA is able to support the SW11tch Back to Battersea Campaign, as we are incredibly proud to be part of Battersea. I’ve invited some of our most experienced colleagues who know the area well to the official unveiling of our new name, as they have helped support the store in making this change.”

SW11tch Back to Battersea campaigner, Philip Beddows, commented: “We are delighted that ASDA has now firmly positioned itself as part of the ‘Battersea Family’! We would particularly like to pay tribute to ASDA’s General Store Manager Andrew Holmes who has done so much to establish a close partnership with the local community.”
