In October 2010 a new partnership was born in Southwell when the Loughborough Building Society opened its agency within Gascoines Estate Agents at 1 Church Street, Southwell. Since that time the partnership has gone from strength to strength, supporting local people with great savings and mortgage products.

Douglas Gascoine, founder of Gascoines Estate Agent and Chartered Surveyors commented: "Gascoines are proud to be the only estate agents in Southwell who have a building society on our premises. We believe that this highly successful pairing directly benefits clients in and around the local area offering convenience and excellent customer service."

Gary Brebner, Chief Executive Officer at Loughborough Building Society said: "We are delighted with the first five years in Southwell, pairing with a successful Agent like Gascoines made great sense for everyone. It is very pleasing to see the growth in membership numbers and know that we are providing the people of Southwell and surrounding villages with access to the Loughborough Building Society mortgage and savings products."

Gary went on to say "Being part of local communities is core to the Society's ethos and providing access to savings products on the High Street is part of our commitment to local communities at a time when others are closing branches."

With both businesses so focused on their local communities this partnership looks set to continue going from strength to strength.
