New branch at Ruddington is formally opened
The Nottingham’s new branch at Ruddington was formally opened last Friday by local well known resident and customer, Barbara Breakwell.
Mrs Breakwell has been a resident in Ruddington for some 30 years and is well known in the community. In addition, she has been a customer at The Nottingham for over 20 years and originally opened her account when The Nottingham had an agency branch just across the High Street.
Mrs Breakwell was joined by members of The Nottingham including David Thompson, Simon Taylor, Lorraine Giddings, Diane Walters and Ruddington branch manager Cheryl Eames. Robin Hood and Maid Marion where also present helping to draw new customers into the branch.
Mrs Breakwell, said, “I was really delighted to be asked to open this new branch of The Nottingham. It’s great to see The Nottingham back on the High Street in the centre of Ruddington. The new branch is a great addition to the High Street and has really improved the look and feel of the village.”
The branch was very busy with customers, many of them changing their passbooks from Shepshed ones to Nottingham ones. Brenda and Harold Morley (and their dogs Lily and Archie) were there doing just that. Mrs Morley, added, “We were originally customers of The Nottingham. When that closed we switched to the Shepshed and now we are changing back to The Nottingham. The new branch looks great and we particularly like the fact that there’s no counter that we have to stand at.”
Cheryl Eames, the new branch manager, said, “The first two weeks have been incredibly busy. We have some really positive feedback from a mix of Shepshed customers and existing Nottingham customers as well as new ones. Everybody says how warm and welcoming it is when they walk in, rather than standing at a counter, they are served by customer advisers at a desk. It’s a very personal service and is proving very popular.”
