Clive today visited the new Bexley and Greenwich Credit Union branch in the Eltham Centre.
Credit unions are run as cooperatives, democratically owned and controlled by their members.
Speaking during his visit, Clive said: “I am delighted that the Greenwich & Bexley Credit Union has opened a new branch in the Eltham Centre. I have joined as a member and encourage others to visit the branch and do the same as it will help it to expand in Eltham. More people need to know how credit unions work so they can save safely, borrow responsibly and avoid being exploited by payday loan companies.”
From Tues 1st Sept the Eltham branch will be open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 10.00 to 4.30 and closed for lunch between 1 and 2 (currently 12.30 to 1).
The branch will be closed on the third Thursday of every month in the morning for staff training and will open at 2pm. This will start on Thurs 17th Sept.
You can find them near the main reception desk at the Eltham Centre, 2 Archery Road, SE9 1HA. If you want to join the Credit Union then visit their website here.
