After 15 years as Bath Building Society CEO, and two successful years as Chairman of the Building Societies Association, Dick has now joined the Society as a Non-Executive Director.
Robin Bailey, Chair of the Buckinghamshire said “I am delighted that Dick is joining our Board. His knowledge and experience of running a similar sized Society over a sustained period, and his network and reputation in the market is outstanding. This will be invaluable to the Buckinghamshire and to our continuing successful progress growing our business whilst doing the right thing for our members, staff, the local community and other stakeholders.”
Every year we donate to a charity chosen by our members. This year Liz King, an Ambassador for Macmillan Cancer Support for the Gerrards Cross and Buckinghamshire South Fundraising Group, along with representatives from Heart of Bucks, was presented with a cheque for £7000 at our Society’s AGM on Wednesday 25th April.
“I am delighted that our members have voted for the funds from our charitable foundation to go to Macmillan Cancer Support” said Andrew Craddock, CEO at Buckinghamshire Building Society. “I think many of us have been touched by cancer and the work they do is invaluable to those affected”.
Liz King, fundraising volunteer said “We are extremely grateful to the Buckinghamshire Building Society and its members for choosing to support Macmillan. With their support we are able to help more people in many different ways, when they need it the most”.
2018 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING - VOTING RESULTS
The Society’s 111th Annual General Meeting was held on 25 April 2018 at the Bull Hotel, Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire.
This year, approximately 1,200 members voted on the matters considered at the Annual General Meeting, being just over 15% of the Society’s eligible membership. The votes received included those voting in person at the meeting itself and those who chose to vote through the submission of Appointment of Proxy and Voting forms, either through the post or by using the Society’s online voting facility.
The table here shows the total number of votes cast. Members voted overwhelmingly in support of the resolutions and approved all of the director re-elections.
To ensure fairness and accuracy, the AGM vote was scrutinised independently by Electoral Reform Services.
Based on the number of votes received the Society will shortly be making a donation to the Chiltern Foodbank of £500.
We are delighted to have been nominated by Savings Champion in the category of Best ISA. Our Help to Buy ISA has been in the Best Buy charts for several months.

The society held their first Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 29th September to raise funds for this charity which we chose to be our staff charity of the year. To enter into the spirit of a “real” coffee morning, staff came to work in dress down and we were all encouraged to take a break from our work, and to have a cuppa/drink and a cake. A fantastic array of cakes and buns were made by staff to raise money.
