Headway North Cumbria has participated at the opening of the new Carlisle Branch of the Newcastle Building Society.
The North East’s biggest building society has opened a new open plan branch at 65 English Street, Carlisle, just a short way along the road from the existing branch. This forms part of a continuing multi-million pound investment programme across the whole of the Newcastle Building Society branch network. The new 2,000 sq ft branch provides better space for customers to access services, information and advice, as well as improved meeting areas to discuss all aspects of personal financial planning. A community area forms part of the design, and provides a free space in which local people, groups and good causes can share information about events and activities that are happening in the local area.
The new branch held a grand opening on Thursday 6th December 2018 and the community area was used to host a Festive Market over the period 6th to 8th December 2018. Headway North Cumbria was invited to participate and had the opportunity to provide information on the services that it provides and raise funds through the sale of craft items.
