Roadchef’s Pont Abraham Motorway Service Area (MSA), located at Junction 49 on the M4 in Wales, has awarded Judith Beckett, one of its longest serving employees, with the Long Service Award for her 25 years of hard work.

Judith first joined Pont Abraham Roadchef in 1998, where she worked at WHSmith as a cashier. Following Pont Abraham’s arrival of coffee chain, Costa, Judith took up the Branch Manager position, working alongside her sister and daughter. After a couple of years working at the coffee chain, Judith took the senior position of Team Leader at WHSmith. This role also gave her involvement in managing the MSA forecourt, providing her with valuable experience for her next promotion to Operations Manager at WHSmith, where she remains today.
