Passbook Savings Account

A savings account with a passbook

Our Passbook Savings Account is our Adults Savings Account with the addition of a passbook. Savings with a passbook means that you can keep a physical record of all your transactions in one place making it easy to manage your savings.

Saving the traditional way

Everyone is saving for a different reason. This is why our savings account has been designed to be flexible to meet every individual's saving needs. Whether you're wanting to build up your savings regularly or deposit a lump sum of money, saving for a rainy day or for something special, know that we will take good care of your money while you are reaching your saving goals.

Saving with Ethics

Do you ever wonder where does your money get invested? When you save with us, you know that your money is being put to hard work in our local community and is only ever invested locally.
