The Ashington branch of the North East’s biggest building society is set to reopen after the completion of a two month refurbishment programme.
Newcastle Building Society has created an enhanced, open plan branch on Station Road in the town as part of an ongoing multi-million pound investment programme across the whole of its branch network.
The Ashington branch has been closed since the end of November, but will reopen from 9am on Monday 28 January.
An official reopening event will then take place on Thursday 14 February, with Sara Robinson of local healthy living charity The Full Circle Food Project set to cut the ribbon at the upgraded branch.
The refurbishment has been designed to provide Society customers with better access to services, information and advice, as well as additional space for transactions.
A community room also forms part of the new design, and provides a free space in which local people, groups and good causes can hold meetings and events.
Stuart Miller, customer director of Newcastle Building Society, said: “We’re continuing to invest in our branch network to ensure customers right across the North East have access to the services and facilities they should expect from a modern financial institution like ourselves.
“The Society remains fully committed to maintaining and enhancing a modern branch network that sits right at the heart of our communities, and we excited to be revealing our new branch design to local customers.”
