Staff at the Tring branch of Harpenden Building Society are celebrating after the company was named the Community Orientated Business of the Year.

The annual Mayor’s Pride awards in St Albans honour people, groups and businesses who have gone the extra mile to help others.

The Tring branch – which opened in January 2011 – has supported several local charities including Tring Together, and has been a regular fixture in the community.

More recently, the branch sponsored this year’s Design A Light competition for the town’s Christmas Festival, which kicks off tonight at 6.30pm.

CEO Paul Marsden said: “We’re delighted to be recognised with a Mayor’s Pride award, and the win is incredibly motivating for the whole team. Our aim is to continue providing support to customers where they live.”
