Did you catch our great news last week? Your local credit union has welcomed back one of its most popular faces.
Anthony Brookes, who was a loans officer with us for seven years, has come back as one of our senior managers.
He will be working closely with co-manager Jackie Colebourne, who many of our members will know was the credit union’s first ever member of staff.
Together Anthony and Jackie, along with the rest of the team here at Birley Street, will be working hard to make sure the people of Blackpool, Fylde, Wyre and Preston know all about the credit union and what it can do to help them.
Our aim is simply to provide fair and affordable alternatives to payday and doorstep lenders, and to help those people who the banks won’t.
Although we’ve changed our name since Anthony was last here, from the Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre Credit Union to CLEVR Money, we’re still the same not-for-profit organisation, run for and by the people of our community.
Since his return, Anthony has been all over the place. You may have spotted him already, or been following his travels on our Facebook page. If you’ve not already, Like the page to see what he’s getting up to this week.
Hopefully you’ll be seeing even more of him, and the rest of the team, as we start offering appointments out in the community, for people who can’t get up to Birley Street. Keep an eye on Facebook to find out where and when, and why not come and see us for a chat about your finances.
