Insight into how we help the community and why mutuality is in our DNA.
Newbury Building Society was delighted to be recognised as ‘Highly Commended’ for ‘Best Financial Partner’ at last week’s National Housing Awards 2018.
The only building society to be nominated for an award across all categories, the Society was pipped to the post by Censeo Financial who took home the winner’s trophy. 31ten Consulting and TMP The Mortgage People were also shortlisted in the category.
Phillippa Cardno, Operations and Sales Director at Newbury Building Society attended the awards and said: “As a Society we are passionate about supporting accessible and affordable homeownership for all. We are thrilled to be ‘Highly Commended’ for ‘Best Financial Partner’ as we take great pride in helping people take the all-important first step onto the property ladder in a difficult housing market. We will continue to help working households meet their homeownership aspirations with a choice of affordable mortgage options.”
A day spent celebrating excellence, innovation and progression in affordable housing; Newbury Building Society was also the proud sponsor of the ‘Best Small Development’ category – an award which recognises the contribution affordable home ownership has made in its local community – for the second year running. South London-based housing association, Wandle, scooped up the top prize for its Hillingdon Street development – a stylish and vibrant urban living complex on the outskirts of Vauxhall, London.
Phillippa said: “The National Housing Awards is a great opportunity to highlight large and small high-quality projects providing viable and accessible homes in local communities. Congratulations to Wandle whose Hillingdon Street development is one such scheme paving the way for affordable homeownership in London.”
