Edgeworthstown area surveyed for potential of full time credit union

People in the Edgeworthstown area are being urged to give their opinions on the potential of a full time credit union.

Earlier this year, Ulster Bank annouced that it’s to close its branch leaving the town without a permanent bank for the first time.

Currently, Longford Credit Union operates a sub office which only opens for three hours one day a week.

The head office has distributed questionaries to residences and businesses to assess their banking needs and whether they would like to see a fully staffed 6 day a week service.

Forms are also available at J&M Gift store in the town – the closing date for all returns is this Friday.

Councillor Paul Ross says they’re hoping for a good response from the wider Edgeworthstown area.
