Local Credit Union Celebrates Golden Anniversary of British Credit Unions
Barrow & District Credit Union is celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the first credit union in Britain.
Credit unions have been putting their members first and providing them with the financial services they need since 1964. There are now nearly 400 in Britain which together provide responsible savings and loans to over 1 million people and look after over £1 billion in assets.
Rob Cairns, our Chairman, was delighted when he turned up to attend this year's Love Barrow Awards to see that local MP John Woodcock had invited Stella Creasy as his guest to the event. Stella, Labour MP, from Walthamstow, has been extremely influential with her Sharkstoppers Campaign against loan sharks.
BARROW CREDIT UNION EXTENDS SERVICE TO COVER ULVERSTON, GRANGE AND CARTMEL
As the South Lakeland Credit Union Study Group is not yet in a position to apply for authorisation to the Prudential Regulation Authority, Barrow & District Credit Union has extended its ‘common bond’ area so that it can offer credit union services to people who live or work in Ulverston, Grange-over-Sands and Cartmel as well as the various surrounding villages.
BARROW CREDIT UNION EXTENDS SATURDAY OPENING
After a very successful three month trial of opening on a Saturday morning, covering the run up to Christmas and the New Year, Barrow & District Credit Union have decided to extend their Saturday opening between 10am and 1pm for a further trial period of three months.
