The company that handles all Slough Borough Council's repairs and maintenance work has won a top award.

Osborne Property Services in partnership with Slough Borough Council won a Business Support of the Year award for its service to the community.

The Osborne and Slough Borough Council partnership was eligible for a Slough Voluntary Sector award because of its work with charities in the borough, as well as for the fact that it offers work experience and placements for students.

Michelle Comley, Osborne Account Director, said: “We were pleased we were shortlisted in the first place and delighted to have won the award.

“Osborne is not only committed to providing a repairs and maintenance service but working in the Slough community to help people now and for their future.

“Our work does not stop with what we have already achieved in the last year. There are lots of projects which have already been set up and are in the pipeline to help more Slough residents.”

Kamal Lallian, Slough Borough Council’s neighbourhood contracts & business services manager, said: “This is a great result which benefits Slough people as a result of the council’s partnership with Osborne.”

Osborne's successful submission said: “Our partnership is also focused on providing work opportunities for local people, procuring materials from local suppliers and working with local sub-contractors, keeping spend within the borough.”
