This month marks the 50th anniversary of Norwich and Peterborough Building Society having a branch in Spalding.
The branch in Sheep Market first opened its doors in January 1961, the year that the average world population was three billion (compared to an estimated seven billion), the average house price was £2,770, and the farthing coin ceased to be legal tender in the UK.
Kelly said: “It’s not been that long since I completed ten years with N&P, and I’ve just been appointed manager of this branch, so there’s lots to celebrate. I can’t believe that we have been in Spalding for 50 years, although we have some customers who can remember the branch from many years back.
To help celebrate 50 years in the town, the branch has a luxury hamper ready to give away in a free prize draw. Anyone visiting the branch to make a transaction on an account throughout January will be automatically entered into the draw.
