Glastonbury isn’t all about mud, wellies and music; the town itself is a thriving community which more than 9,000 people call home. For members of a busy, vibrant town like Glastonbury, losing in-branch access to vital financial services can be difficult.
So, when we heard bank closures in the Somerset town were affecting the local community, we gave locals the opportunity to have their say on the possibility of opening a Nationwide branch. The response was overwhelming.
So, with the town pledging their support, we decided to open our first community branch. Opening a community branch means we worked with locals to find out exactly what services they needed before we opened. And we’ll continue to talk to them to make sure the branch still meets the needs of the community. Plus, we’ll be holding events that engage, educate and inform not only our members but the whole community.
Our new Glastonbury branch combines the very latest technology – like our pioneering high definition video link, Nationwide Now, coupled with the very best customer service, delivered by a team who are on hand to provide advice and support to members.
