- A big thanks to The Mutual Bank for coming on board as a sponsor once again, a true local bank!
Founded in 1888 by a group of passionate Maitland locals, The Mutual Bank was established with the mission to ensure that financial investment stayed within the local area.
Originally known as The Maitland Permanent Building, Investment and Loan Society Limited and Savings Bank (‘the society’), the name was extensive, but the intention of investing local money within the Hunter community was straightforward. And, although a lot has changed over the years, one thing that remains constant is the importance of community as a core value and guiding principle for The Mutual Bank.
The first loan processed and approved by The Mutual Bank was made on January 16, 1889, to Mrs Margaret Kerrigan of Reilly Street, East Maitland in the amount of £120.
For the first 64 years of its existence the office of secretary at The Mutual Bank was held by a father and son, Frederick William Thursby, succeeded by his son William Thomas Thursby. The pair established and grew the society as a trusted financial institution, despite the hardship of World War II and the Great Depression, both of which occurred during William Thursby’s tenure.
Throughout its 130-year history The Mutual Bank has prevailed through two World Wars, the Great Depression, floods, coalfield riots, the Global Financial Crisis, and most recently the Coronavirus epidemic, offering strength, security and stability to members and the local community.
- Thank you to the Mai-Wel Group for coming on board again as sponsors for Maitland Heritage Fest 2022
