Our Society

In a fast-moving life, isn't it encouraging to know that some things are here for good?

We're an independent, mutual organisation and we're here for our members, not shareholders.

We're based in East Anglia and provide mortgages and savings, not gimmicks.

And we're here to help the local community, because it's the one we live in too.

Find out more about how we've been doing that for 170 years.
