With at least three loan sharks and no banks operating in the town, the Credit Union NEFIRST was set up to challenge the status quo and create a local banking option. It has grown steadily from day one, with two schools now having savings clubs and many regular adult savers.
For savings and loans, fill out a simple application along with proof of address and pay £1 to join and start saving. You will receive a savings book when you join to keep a record of your savings. Our credit union collection point is open 9:30pm – 12:30pm and 1:30pm – 4:30pm Monday to Friday and 10:00am to 12:00pm on Saturday. To download forms for savings, loans and withdrawals go to the NEFIRST website for paper copies and more information pop into Shildon Alive 91-95 Church Street or contact NEFIRST direct on 0330 055 3666.
