We are working hard to maintain the best service we can for you. As you can imagine our telephone lines are exceptionally busy at the moment. So we are asking for your help too.
In the interests of the health of both our customers and our staff, please avoid visiting our branches unless necessary. Please telephone your local branch direct if you have any queries or to register to use our online services.
To reduce the risk to our branch staff and customers, from 1st April, branch opening hours will temporarily be reduced to 9am - 12pm Monday to Friday and closed on Saturdays.
We have also temporarily reduced our telephone opening hours at Principal Office to 9am - 3.30pm Monday to Friday and closed on Saturdays.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
There is some evidence that criminals are attempting to use the current COVID-19 situation as an exploitation opportunity, so please be extra vigilant before clicking on an email about the coronavirus outbreak. If a claim sounds too good to be true, it probably is...
Criminals use exceptional circumstances like the current situation as a chance to pose as employees of a genuine organisation such as building society, bank or police and target you for fraud scams. They may claim they are dealing with coronavirus-related issues that require you to respond by paying money or providing personal information that will allow them to access your account. They often use pressure tactics to stop you thinking about want they want you do for them.
To help you stay protected, here are some things that we will never do:
Please remain vigilant.
Stop – Take a moment to think.
Challenge – Don’t be afraid to ask questions or to say “No” and end the conversation.
Protect – Contact the building society or the bank from which you have made a payment immediately if you think that you have been the victim of fraud.
We understand that some customers may be worried about the effect that contracting the Coronavirus (COVID-19) could have on their finances, for example due to a drop in income as a result of contracting the virus or because of the measures imposed to stop it spreading. If you have any concerns about how this could affect you and your mortgage, please click here to read the leaflet produced by the Building Societies Association and National Debtline or please get in touch on 01664 414141.

The Melton Building Society
The Society’s Charity of the Year is Rainbows
Rainbows is the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, providing vital care and support to families impacted by life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. The hospice provides end of life care, symptom management, short breaks and respite care, together with help for parents and siblings through their bereavements.
Rainbows only gets around 15% of their funding from government bodies, so the charity relies on donations to fund the care they give.
Rainbows has 12 beds and aims to provide 1:1 care wherever possible on a needs led basis for all children and young people who use their service. Rainbows is a nurse-led unit with support from a team of doctors with expertise in children’s palliative and end of life care and symptom management.
Our branches and Principal Office are fund raising throughout the year with raffles, book and cake sales and dress down days. Please give us your support!
Volunteers play a vital part in supporting Rainbows. From gardening and housekeeping to fundraising and administration. Volunteers at the hospice work as part of the wider team and help to bring love, smiles and laughter to the children, young people and families that they support.
