Somerset Savings and Loans changes trading name to Westcountry Savings and Loans
06 Oct 17
The extension took effect in June 2017 and the new name is designed to more accurately reflect the new membership area. It has no effect on the services that the credit union currently provides to the communities of Somerset and Devon but demonstrates the credit union’s continued growth and success.
Jackie Simpson, General Manager at the credit union, said: “Our new name will better reflect the area we now serve, which stretches from Bath in the east to Plymouth in the west.
We recently extended our common bond to cover the county of Devon and have already gained new members and expanded our lending business to cover this new area. We continue to make improvements to our on-line services so we can offer a fully digitised, modern credit union to our members now and in the future.
We are in the early stages of setting up a Payroll Deduction Agreement with Devon County Council and hope to bring other similar employers on-board in the next few months.”
