Mansfield Building Society’s brand new branch, located at the bottom of Regent Street, is a stone’s throw away from its head office and opened its doors on July 13.

The fresh, modern premises have been dressed in the society’s distinctive new brand, with its stag motif helping to celebrate the town’s close ties with nearby Sherwood Forest.

The existing branch, which has been operating from the society’s head office, has transferred its counter service to the new premises.

Paul Wheeler, the society’s chief executive, said he was delighted to have opened new premises in the town and that the investment demonstrated the society’s commitment to Mansfield and the community it has now served for more than 150 years.

He said: “As we continue to grow, our commercial success has led to a requirement for more space.

"We’ve needed to find premises to support our expansion but we also wanted to reinforce our commitment to the town and the community that we have been part of since the society was formed in 1870.

"We pride ourselves on the warm and friendly service we provide and look forward to welcoming new and existing members to our flagship branch.

"At this time, I would ask everyone to follow the Covid-19 instructions in branch when coming to see us.”
