The Society is pleased to announce that it has been included on the coveted Chance and Community Chest Cards, as well as two squares, on the newly-launched Newport Monopoly board.

The Society’s inclusion on the board is made all the more momentous since the famous squirrel logo features prominently on all Monopoly money.

Twenty two Newport landmarks were announced today at a VIP red carpet launch at the Celtic Manor, after thousands of Newport residents voted for their favourites. At the launch, a gigantic replica of the unique official board was unveiled at the same moment the Monopoly: Newport Edition board goes on shop shelves.

The Society is pleased to share the board with other local businesses and charities including Age Cymru Gwent, Newport Gwent Dragons and the University of South Wales.

Dan Taylor, from makers Winning Moves UK, said: “We are delighted to have Monmouthshire Building Society on board as part of the Newport Monopoly. Having their logo on the money felt a natural choice as they’re such an iconic Newport-based financial institution.”

Andrew Lewis, Chief Executive, commented: “When we first heard about the decision to make a Newport Monopoly board, we were keen to be involved as much as possible. 2014 is a momentous year for the Society, with our 145th anniversary and the achievement of a billion pounds in assets, so we felt it important to mark these celebrations in a unique, exciting way.”

The new Monopoly Newport Edition is available from all leading stores from today, including Waitrose, Waterstones, WH Smith and The Works, as well as online at
