Newbury Building Society celebrates 165 years

Newbury Building Society will be celebrating its 165th birthday on Monday 1st November 2021. 

The Society was formed in Newbury in 1856 and has been committed to helping local communities with their savings and home purchase needs ever since. Today, with over 70,000 members, the Society is stronger than ever with ten branches across Berkshire, Hampshire, and Oxfordshire. 

You can view our history here.

Our members are warmly invited to join us in their local branch on Monday 1st November for a birthday cupcake* as a thank you for their ongoing support.  
Roland Gardner, Chief Executive said:  

“Newbury Building Society is a financially strong and highly trusted mutual, where value for members, high standards of customer service and involvement in our branch communities continue to be our primary focus. 

The Society has been through many challenging times in its long history and the coronavirus pandemic is the most recent test, which I am confident we will come through as strong as ever.  

Whilst times are changing, particularly in the ways in which our members wish to transact with us, we are adapting as a building society whilst remaining true to our rich heritage and to our fundamental values.  

This milestone is a great endorsement of the enduring demand for our products and services and we look forward to serving our communities for many more decades to come.”
