Bristol Credit Union Gets Council Cash

Was interested to see that the city council has invested £30,000 into Bristol's Credit Union, which recently relocated to a prominant position in Stoke's Croft.

Credit Unions are co-operatives which provide many traditional banking services to their members.

I think they are an idea whose time has come and that, as the global financial crises causes many to question the traditional institutions we have used up to now, we will see increasing numbers of individuals using credit unions for some or all of their financial needs.
