More on local Credit Unions

As a follow-up to my recent article on local Credit Unions it turns out that the Blackbird Leys CU is in discussions to merge with the larger Oxford Credit Union. This would seem to be a sensible move as hyper-local CUs such as Blackbird Leys will struggle to find the resources to keep their operations going. This report from the Oxford Mail has more information.

Another interesting development is that @robin_peake who is involved in the @ThriveBarton project, is looking at the possibility of setting up a credit union in Barton (a personal project of his).
