Westpac opened its doors as the very first bank in Forbes 146 ago. Customers were invited to help celebrate last Thursday with Forbes Bank Manager, Shannon Crowley telling customers their patronage were valued. He also thanked his team for all the hard work they put in.
He asked Judith (Jude) Taylor, one of his favourite customers to help cut the cake. “Jude always comes in and have a conversation. It is so much more than just about banking. I enjoy talking to customers,” said Shannon.
One customer asked about the history of the building at 90 Lachlan Street and Shannon brought a framed collection of photographs of the bank’s buildings over the years. He said they were in the process of planning a revamp on the outside, as Wespac was housed in one of the beautiful build- ings in Forbes.
