I find it hard to capture the depth of my feelings about West Bromwich Building Society’s decision to abandon the town which gives it its name.
The people in charge there should be ashamed of themselves.
They know the council offered them land and terms to build a spanking new HQ in West Bromwhich they could not have got anywhere else in the country.
And yet they are choosing to reject our offer in favour of a move to an existing building in Dudley.
I think their decision is a disgrace and a slap in the face for local people and the society’s own history.
I don’t know exactly who founded theWest Brom– but I bet they must be turning in their graves right now.
I think local people will be very upset given that the West Brom made its money on the back of there hard work and savings. And I hope the West Brom think again !
