Our commitment to the town of Hadleigh goes back a long way, with a significant part of the town having been developed by the Ipswich & Suffolk Freehold Land Society back in the 1850’s. Our Hadleigh premises opened in 1979 and was the Society’s first branch outside of Ipswich. Such was its success that it was quickly followed by branches in Framlingham, Aldeburgh, Halesworth and Saxmundham by the end of 1984.
This latest investment in our branch network follows the opening of two new premises in the Society’s existing branch towns of Ipswich and Woodbridge last year. The improvements to the branch have seen the exterior return to its original shade of Suffolk Pink and a complete refurbishment of the interior.
Marking the 40th anniversary, a day of celebrations took place at the new-look branch with a heritage display showcasing materials from the Society’s extensive archive, illustrating our role in helping to provide homes for families in Suffolk and beyond.
To have been in the same place on the high street for 40 years is no small achievement – we’re proud to continue to serve the people of Hadleigh, having provided people with a safe place for their savings for three generations.
