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.

A convenient place for your savings with the flexibility of easy access...
If you don’t need to have easy access to your savings, you can earn a better rate of interest with a notice account...

Savings give you choices in life - not only the ability to pay for the essentials, but also the financial freedom to choose to have fun when you want to.
No matter how small the amount you are able to put away, frequency is key to success. However, for some of us, knowing where to start with savings can be tricky. Our Handy Guide to making the most of your savings gives you an understanding of why and how you should save.
Getting into the saving habit whatever kind of saver you are is easier than it sounds and there's no time like the present to develop saving habits that can help you become financially independent.
We offer a wide range of savings accounts including easy access savings, notice savings, children’s savings, tax free savings, online savings, fixed rate savings, offset savings and business savings accounts. Read 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.
