A spectacular balloon race was staged to mark the 140th birthday of one of Melton’s oldest businesses.

The event was staged in the town centre by staff at Melton Mowbray Building Society, which has helped thousands of people onto the housing ladder and to save for their future as well as supporting the community.

As part of this event, which involved the release of 500 balloons, the society launched its newly-refurbished branch and invited new and existing customers to chat to its experienced employees.

Martin Reason, the company’s chief executive, said: “The Society remains as committed to providing first class personal service and competitive mortgage and savings products as it was 140 years ago.”
