Annual Reports - 1931
The Management Committee's Annual Reports for 1931 continued the theme of previous years in emphasising
the growth of the branch network and the corresponding growth in business and depositors' balances. Particular reference is made to
the establishment of a branch in Oldbury - the first branch to be opened outside the city's boundaries. Detailed information is given
regarding the progress of designs for the new Head Office and how a referendum amongst depositors was used to make a decision to switch
evening opening from Saturdays to Fridays with effect from July 31st.
