Special guests launch The Nottingham's new Wigston branch
Leicester Tigers Rugby Club were VIP guests of The Nottingham at our new Wigston branch recently.
Representatives of the club - including mascot Welford the Tiger – joined The Nottingham’s chief executive David Marlow at an event to celebrate the Society’s building society services now being available in the Leicestershire town.
The joint branch, on Leicester Road, is the latest example of our ‘all under one roof’ offering for customers as we combine building society products and advice alongside Harrison Murray Estate Agency (which was acquired by The Nottingham in 2013).
It opened its doors in November 2015 but was officially launched via the event, which also featured a visit from The Nottingham’s mascots Robin Hood and Maid Marian, free refreshments and face painting.
Leicester Tigers community coaches and Welford were present to highlight The Nottingham’s sponsorship of the club, which has seen the Society sponsor its TAG Rugby Programme and become official partners of their Junior Tigers Club – for fans under the age of 16. They gave out free games and goody bags to youngsters.
The Nottingham’s Leicester and Wigston branch building society manager Sunny Johal said: “It’s fantastic to be able to offer building society services in Wigston and further strengthen our presence in Leicestershire.
“We have been really well received since we opened in November so we wanted to give something back to local people with this event.”
Harrison Murray’s Wigston office senior residential manager Jennie Andrews added: “We’ve been a popular feature in Wigston for years, so are a well-established brand, however it’s fantastic to team up with colleagues from the building society and be able to provide local people with an ‘all under one roof’ offering in a brand new branch.
“We are not only able to give advice and help when it comes to buying and selling houses but also put people in touch with colleagues who can pass on their expertise when it comes to savings, mortgages, home insurance and financial planning.”
