Tragic loss of Nor­wich & Peterborough

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Yourviews -

Hun­dreds of jobs are set to be lost as the Nor­wich & Peterborough Build­ing So­ci­ety ceases to be and its par­ent com­pany the York­shire Build­ing So­ci­ety drops the brand name, cuts its work­force in Peterborough dra­mat­i­cally and closes branches across the re­gion. The N&P is a re­spected brand in this part of the world. It has been trusted by tens of thou­sands of cus­tomers and has also built a rep­u­ta­tion for sup­port­ing the com­mu­nity with many projects by its staff and fi­nan­cial sup­port for events and projects in the area. It is a tragedy when a brand as trusted and long-stand­ing as the N&P does not sur­vive and its clo­sure di­min­ishes the city and the lo­cal econ­omy. Our thoughts and sup­port are with all those em­ploy­ees af­fected - it is a deeply wor­ry­ing time for them.
