The latest edition of Credit Union News, which we have been working on for our client ABCUL, has been published. This special edition celebrates the 50th Anniversary of credit unions in Britain.
The first two credit unions – Wimbledon Credit Union and Hornsey Co-operative Credit Union – both started in April 1964, and the magazine includes an interview with two of the founder members of Hornsey Co-operative Credit Union. There is a timeline showing how the credit union sector in Britain has developed over the last 50 years and an interview with credit union activist Martin Logan, who has played a key role in helping to record the history of credit unions in this country.
There is also a look ahead to the future, with a feature on some of the “new kids on the block”: Polish Credit Union UK, Churches Mutual Credit Union and Retail Credit Union are three new credit unions taking the sector forward.
The magazine goes out to ABCUL members and many others with an interest in the credit union sector and is published three times a year. A copy of the latest issue can be downloaded from our publications page.
