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.

Make the most of your tax free allowance with our cash ISAs. An ISA is an Individual Savings Account. They are a tax-efficient way to save money as you pay no tax on the interest you earn.
A Cash ISA (Individual Savings Account) is an investment which enables annual sums to be saved and on which interest is paid free of tax. However, it is not possible to state that favourable tax treatment will be maintained indefinitely as it is the government and not the Society who is responsible for the tax treatment.
We have two ISA savings accounts – an easy access Cash ISA and a 60 Day Notice Cash ISA
Take a look at our Handy Guide to making the most of your savings.

How safe are your savings?
You may be worried that if you tie your money up in a savings account, it won’t be protected. However, the Financial Services Compensation Scheme is an independent body that serves as a last resort to cover most deposits, including savings, up to the value of £85,000. So, if for some reason your bank or building society failed, your money is protected by the FSCS.
