Coronavirus - Help us to help you

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.

Coronavirus Update

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.

Coronavirus Scams

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:

  • Sales of ineffective protective face masks
  • Coronavirus-themed phishing emails with malicious links and attachments
  • Fraudsters sending texts and emails pretending to be from the World Health Organisation (WHO) claiming to be able to provide a list of infected people in their area. Please remember to be wary of links and attachments from unsolicited emails and texts and take care not to provide your personal or financial details
  • Posing as employees of a bank or building society. Please click here to read further guidance on how to protect yourself

Thank you for your patience.

Supporting a sustainable future

The Melton is working with the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust & Leicestershire & Rutland Wildlife Trust to raise funds to protect wildlife and encourage enjoyment of the natural world. Supporting wildlife and the Trusts ties in with the Society’s community ethos and its commitment to providing sustainable mortgages, affordable housing and encouraging responsible living.

Sustainable mortgages

Take a mortgage with us and you can help build a more sustainable future.

Affordable housing

We support sustainable living through lending on shared ownership and affordable custom build housing projects.

Our Eco Mortgage makes creating energy saving properties and improvements more affordable – helping homeowners to save money on their fuel bills as well as reducing their carbon emissions.

Mutual values

Mutuality is about helping each other, which is also what sustainability is all about. The Melton is a modern mutual building society which means we don’t have shareholder dividends to pay so results of our success are shared with members through higher interest rates for savers, lower rates for borrowers and providing a better service.

The Melton is dedicated to supporting the communities in which we live and work - we understand the positive effect that comes from people working together. As a local organisation, we believe we have a responsibility towards our community and its economy. Our involvement is not only financial, we also offer our business expertise and the time of our staff who work with various charities and community groups to help make a difference. Our commitment to the local community has a clear connection with the work of the Wildlife Trusts and by pulling together we will help ensure a sustainable future for everyone to enjoy.
