Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FRONT PAGE -

SHOP­PERS were sur­prised to be greeted by a cow­girl as they ar­rived at Asda’s Ash­ford su­per­mar­ket. It was trainee man­ager Nikki Di­a­mond’s way of cel­e­brat­ing her se­lec­tion for a dream com­pany trip to the United States. Mum-of-three Nikki, from St Teresa’s Close, Ash­ford, whose hus­band is night man­ager of the Can­ter­bury store, has been picked as one of the Bri­tish del­e­ga­tion for the week-long trip to USA for the an­nual global meet­ing of Wal-Mart staff in Ben­tonville, Arkansas, at the end of the month. There she will be stay­ing on the univer­sity cam­pus and meet­ing the de­scen­dents of Sam Wal­ton who started the small town shop that de­vel­oped to be­come the shop­ping em­pire it now is.
