Credit Union to Offer Basic Current Accounts

Barrow & District Credit Union has entered into a partnership with Barclays Bank to enable their members, old and new, that do not have a current account to open a basic current account with the Bank. The current account will offer customers, who may not be able to open a regular current account, a basic, no frills account with no monthly fee and without borrowing facilities. The account will however include:
• a cash card or a debit card
• online, mobile and telephone banking
• direct debits and standing orders


A Cumbria MP has condemned Wonga after a scandal which will see the payday lender pay millions in compensation to its customers.

Wonga have been ordered to pay £2.6 million in compensation after an investigation found that the lender had sent letters to borrowers from a series of fake law firms.

Jon Balm, CEO of Barrow and District Credit Union, told In-Cumbria he was unsurprised by the scandal.

Mr Balm said: “It doesn’t surprise me. This organisation has a past record of investigations so this is not really surprising news.”
