A high street building society has marked 160 years in the town.
Nationwide, in Market Street, Maidenhead, held a street party for shoppers and customers to mark the milestone on Thursday, May 9, with entertainment and refreshments.
The branch displayed vintage images of the building and a birthday cake was cut.
The name Nationwide has only been used since 1991. The company was founded as Maidenhead Building Society in 1859.
Operations manager Anna Worman said: “It was a really lovely day for the customers and staff.
“We had a team come in from our archive in our head office.
“It was really successful and we had lots of interest, [including] elderly customers who have been loyal customers for a long time.”
