Centenary day for Trowbridge bank
2:59pm Tuesday 20th August 2013 in Latest News
An Edwardian theme marked a Trowbridge bank’s 100th anniversary party celebrations.
Staff at Fore Street’s HSBC branch dressed in clothing from the era and gave out 100 cupcakes to customers.
The branch originally opened as the London, City and Midland Bank Ltd, in Church Walk, on July 22 1913, and moved to Fore Street, on May 7, 1917, later becoming HSBC.
Bill Gray, who has been branch manager for three years, said: “It is a great occasion to mark with the community and our customers have really engaged with it. We are really pleased to celebrate this milestone.”
During the festivities, there were old chequebooks, staff handbooks and home safes on display.
Over the weekend of July 12, branch staff took part in the Three Peaks fundraiser which saw them climbing the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in 24 hours in aid of Dorothy House Hospice Care and Naomi House Children’s Hospice.
