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, branch opening hours have temporarily be reduced to 9am - 1pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 12pm Saturdays.
We have also temporarily reduced our telephone opening hours at Principal Office to 9am - 3.30pm Monday to Friday and 9am – 12pm Saturdays. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
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 Society is aware of fraudsters using the Coronavirus outbreak to try and trick people into parting with their money. Here are four types of fraudulent activity that we are aware of:
The Melton Building Society Charitable Foundation has donated £4,666 to Age UK’s Men in Sheds project in Oakham. Men in Sheds is an innovative project that is designed to support men over 50 who have experienced life changing circumstances such as retirement, redundancy or the death of a partner.
“This donation from the Melton Building Society will make a massive difference to the project, enabling us to purchase the equipment required by the men to start their activities such as woodwork, metalwork, gardening or model building,” said Brian Lee, Co-ordinator, Men in Sheds Rutland. “The new Oakham Shed provides somewhere for older men to go to keep active and put their practical skills to good use, as well as having the chance to develop new friendships, have a coffee and a chat.”
“The Charitable Foundation is delighted to support this local community project to help ensure it is an enduring initiative for the benefit of the community,” said Martin Reason, Charitable Foundation Trustee and Chief Executive, the Melton Building Society.
Men in Sheds meet at Oakham Museum on Wednesdays 11am – 4pm and Fridays 10am – 12pm. For further information please contact Brian Lee on 07540 413805
