2019: our 30th anniversary year

We’re 30 this year and we have a lot planned!

Our history

Each month we’re producing a timeline of events that have been important for our history. In January we’ve listed the activities that led to the creation of your Credit Union. In February we’ll have more about our earlier years.

If you have a story or memory to share about your Credit Union please let us know.

Prize draws

Every month between January and our 30th Annual General Meeting in June there will be a prize draw.

We’re giving away £1,000 for each of our 30 years to adult members. And £100 for each of our 30 years to young savers.

There will be five monthly prizes of £1,000 for adults and five monthly prizes of £100 for junior savers.

You can read the rules, find out about the winners and see when the next draw is taking place here.

We’ll be having a very special Annual General Meeting in June. And there are many more events planned for the year.
