This Friday, at the Beaumont Hotel in Hexham, the Tynedale Community Bank is hosting its update conference. This will bring together members and supporters to receive an update on the progress that has been made since the bank’s official launch in November last year. We already have a lot of deposits, and will be describing both our progress so far and our plans for more loans and support locally. If you want financial advice and a loan then come along.
The bank has been a key project for many of us locally who want to take on pay day lenders, and provide local loans at a good rate. I wanted a bank that was based in my community of Northumberland, serving my community here in Northumberland and whose profits went back to the community of Northumberland.
Officially opened by the Archbishop of York in November, the picture six months on is very encouraging. My hands now off the tiller, the Tynedale Community Bank is pushing on and wants to update all those interested on what the bank can offer you, and how it can serve the community. Tynedale Community Bank has a clear mission to help those in need, and deliver safe and stable community banking through affordable loans and secure savings.
Please do come along, 10:00 am on Friday, to find out more and see how you can support the bank that is helping others across Northumberland.
