February Update from our Chief Executive

2 Feb 2015

This year is the first time your Credit Union has offered the opportunity to members to apply for a scholarship payment of up to $1,000 to assist with increasing financial well-being. The programme would award at least 20 scholarship awards to a maximum of $1,000 each. We have been overwhelmed with the number of applications we have received - 164 in all. It has been a difficult task to select the successful applicants, as all applications were worthy in some aspects.

Due to the quality of applications we have taken the decision to increase the scholarship awards to 25 members - look inside for the successful applicants. In future issues of Bluenotes we will be profiling the successful applicants and highlighting what amazing things they are undertaking. To all the applicants, thank you for your applications and we wish you all well in your future endeavours.

As always, we continue to be focussed on providing the very best offerings for you - our members. To this end, we have been reviewing all our savings accounts to ensure that you as members are getting the very best value that we can give. A detailed outline of all our savings products is within and I am delighted that we have been able to increase the rewards for more of our members. For the 5,839 members that are directly impacted you will have received a letter from us outlining the changes for you specifically.

Should you wish to discuss your accounts or wish to open new accounts, please contact one of our team on 0800 429 000 and they will be very happy to assist. As always, if you have any feedback, please contact me direct on 04 471 4850 or email

Take care
