WALES' largest credit union is expanding with a new hub based in Flintshire. 

Cambrian Savings & Loans, which serves people across north Wales and Powys, has opened its first office in Flintshire, with plans for more in the county.

The new office at The Hwb in Holywell opened on February 28, bringing services closer to the 4,000 members it has in the county.

Hannah Blythyn MS for Delyn, who was instrumental in helping set up the new Holywell office, said: “It was great to visit the newly opened Cambrian Credit Union branch here in Holywell and to hear about the services on offer to the 1000s of members here in Flintshire.

"I know how much members rely on and trust their credit unions to save and borrow money in a safe, responsible way. Now more than ever, that level of engagement and trust is needed.

I’ve always given my support to credit unions – both locally and in government – and look forward to working with Cambrian Credit Union in the months and years ahead”.

Holywell is part of a chain of offices across north Wales for Cambrian, which has 14,000 members with combined savings of £7.7m.

Cambrian’s Holywell office will be open every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 10am and 1pm.
