Colleagues who were made redundant in the run up to Christmas two years ago have won an award for top sales after setting up their own company.
The team at Travel Expressions in Tring were delighted to get the award from tour operator Lusso Travel at The Grove, the luxury five-star hotel in Watford.
Directors Sarah Watson, Sue Hart and Michelle Holt beat their competitors with a sales value of more than £70,000.
Sarah said: “We were thrilled, especially since we didn’t expect to win.
“We have a lot in common with Lusso because its founders were also made redundant and launched their company two years ago.”
The Lusso Travel award certificate now has pride of place at Travel Expressions on the High Street above Costa Coffee.
The team will be giving out reindeer sparklers at Tring’s Christmas festival tomorrow from 6.30pm.
