1st Class Credit Union – A members experience

Retired Member Andy Gibb recently attended his third 1st Class Credit Union AGM and forwarded the following summary of his experience with with Credit Union.

‘My experience has been that of a very professional run credit union, hence my membership since 2014.

You will see from the information that follows that 1st CCU was established through the work of employees of Royal Mail Group and members of the CWU. It made perfect sense for me to join as 1st CCU is based in the city of my upbringing, Glasgow.

I have saved regularly with 1st CCU since 2014 and even availed of a Xmas loan in December 2021 to replace my central heating boiler, so I am both a saver and a borrower.’

Thanks Andy for this glowing report. You can find more information on the Credit Union below and on the following link https://www.1stclasscu.co.uk
