Need a new ... fridge? Bed? Tv? Sofa? Save and borrow with your local community bank. Join 2 Shires today!
Credit unions help people take control of their money by encouraging them to save what they can and borrow only what they can afford to repay. 2 Shires Community Bank is a not-for-profit bank that exists to benefit the community. You can apply for a load that is massively cheaper than doorstep lenders and payday loads and competitive with high street banks.
Membership is open to anyone living or working in the district.
