To strengthen the Society’s commitment to our branch network throughout South Wales, we’re pleased to announce the opening of our newly refurbished branch in the heart of Chepstow.

To help re-open the popular branch on Chepstow’s high street, we’re delighted to have European, World & Paralympic Champion Andy Lewis MBE on board to cut the ribbon and to meet members of the local community for the official opening party on Saturday 25th February.

Andy, who lives nearby in Lydney, has not only achieved European and World Athlete status in the short time that he has competed as a Paratriathlete, but can now proudly add Paralympic Gold Medallist to his ever-expanding record of achievement.

The Chepstow branch refurbishment highlights the Society’s commitment to accessible services on the high street, helping to ensure that the needs of all our members are met both now and in the future. An important aspect of the transformation consists of improved facilities for our disabled members, with full disabled access including automatic doors and a lowered wheelchair-friendly counter.

Despite the physical facelift, the same helpful team are on hand to assist customers with the Society’s competitive range of mortgage, savings and insurance products, coupled with a traditional face-to-face, personal approach to customer service which is one of the Society’s core values.

James Bawa, Chief Executive of Monmouthshire Building Society, said: “A key element of the Society’s growth strategy is to enhance our high street presence throughout South Wales and the South West, and the redevelopment of our Chepstow branch, with significantly improved facilities, will make for a much more satisfying customer experience.”

He continued: “I’m thrilled that we have such an inspiring person as Andy to help us cut the ribbon at the official opening party. Like many people locally, I’m in awe of his achievements in the face of adversity, and I’m sure there will be a large crowd waiting to meet him (and his gold medal!) on the day.”
