The Board of Pioneer Credit Union is pleased to announce that the meger of Pioneer with 5 Communities (5Cs) Credit Union is now complete and we want to welcome all members and volunteers from 5Cs to the Pioneer family.
5Cs has served the communities of Grove Hill, Saltersgill, Easterside, Beechwood and Marton Grove since 1991. However, its Board has found it incrreasingly difficult to persuade members to lend a hand and the task of keeping the credit union running has fallen to Brian and Betty, neither of whom is in the best of health, so it seemed logical to become part of the bigger credit union so that they could receive the help and support they need and the members can access a wider range of services should they wish.
Brian and Betty will continue to play an important part in the running of the collections etc. and these will continue as before.
This latest merger takes the membership of Pioneer to almost 3000, and more importantly takes the total assets of the organisation to over £1m.
Hopefully we will be back soon with some exciting news about some of the schools in our area!! In the meantime, if you have any queries or want information about our services, please do not hesitate to call into any collection point (full list on the Service Points page), email or phone us or call into the office during opening hours.
