A DEVELOPMENT which breathed new life into a previously gloomy area has been named the winner of the Harpenden Society Award.

The annual award is presented to developments which enhance the environment and the new building at Thompson’s Close, which comprises Breathing Space fitness club and Blueberry café, emerged as the clear winner.

Rosemary Horne, chairman of the Harpenden Society Awards committee, said: “The new building blends with the existing one so that it looks like one piece.

“It is an attractive building in its own right, but additionally we were impressed by the enormous contribution the project has made to Thompson’s Close which is now an attractive, open, bright area which enormously enhances the centre of Harpenden.”

Chris Marsden, chairman of the society, presented the award to owner Keith Lunn during a ceremony last Wednesday, which was attended by a number of other society members.

“Everyone at Breathing Space is delighted to receive this award from the Harpenden Society,” said Mr Lunn.

“We have worked hard to create a high quality business in an attractive environment and it is very gratifying to see our efforts rewarded in this way. Thank you to everyone at the Harpenden Society for their support.”
