65 years ago two gentlemen decided to open a mutual society where local people could save and borrow money. This mutual society was the beginning of Harpenden Building Society which now has six branches across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.

Harpenden Building Society like to help make money grow! If you let them look after your savings they give you money back this is called 'interest'. If you would like to borrow money or take out a mortgage they can tailor-make a package for you with reasonable interest rates that are paid to the building society.

Arriving at the building society the first thing you see are the cashiers at the customer counters.

How do people know how much money is in their account?

Every saver customer is given a passbook where any money paid in or taken out of their account is recorded along with the new total balance. Over time they can build interest on their savings, making their money grow even more.

Every time a customer pays money into or takes money out of their account they sign a form. Their signature is checked usuing a special machine.

Inside the customer's passbook there is a secret signature that cannot be seen by the eye. When the passbook is placed into this machine a special light shines on it to show the customers signature. If the signatures match the cashier can continue with the transaction.

People save money for lots of reasons, toys, holidays and as you grow older perhaps a new car, or university or a new home.

Harpenden Building Society have 2 types of young savers accounts 'Young Savers' and 'Club 18'. Save just 10p a week and it would quickly grow in the course of a year. If you opened a 'Young Savers' account your money would earn interest. If you opened a '18 Club' account you have to leave the money in the account until you are 18 and in return you get a higher rate of interest.

Would you like to see £1,000?
