The opening of a new building society branch in Salisbury will be celebrated with a welcome event.

People in the city will be able to go and find out more about the new services being provided.

Yorkshire Building Society will open a new agency with St Barts Finance Ltd, who already operate agencies with the mutual in Bournemouth and Southampton, on Monday, April 3.

To mark the Society’s arrival in Salisbury, a welcome event will be held 10am-2pm on Monday, April 17 at the premises on Oatmeal Row.

Guests will be able to enjoy refreshments, meet the agency’s new colleagues and have a chance to win £100 in a savings account.

Lauren Selby, manager of the Salisbury Yorkshire Building Society agency, said: “We’re really excited to be opening our doors in Salisbury and look forward to helping people save for what’s important to them and to support them in buying their own home.

“The welcome event will be a great opportunity for us to meet people in the community, and for them to pick up a goody bag, enjoy some refreshments and have a chance to win some money in a new savings account. We’d love people to pop in to say hello and can’t wait to meet new and existing customers.”
