At this year's National Housing Awards 2017, Newbury Building Society sponsored the award for Best Small Development. So who scooped up the prize?
The communities in which our branch network operates form the heart of the Society.
We are committed to giving something back to the communities in which our members and staff live and work. Each year we take part in a number of community events and help by giving donations and sponsorship to community organisations, groups and teams.
During the last year some of the events and groups we have supported include:
|Newbury Spring Festival||Winchester Hat Fair|
|Walbury Hill Climb||Oxford City Bowls Club|
|Berkshire County Cricket Team||Thatcham Rugby Club|
|Newbury Rugby Club||Andover Lights Theatre|
|Falkland Cricket Club||Compton Players|
|Abingdon Air Show||Didcot Food Festival|
