If you have one of our savings accounts or are thinking of opening an account, here’s some general information on managing your account with us.
Whilst we offer a variety of payment methods, certain products have restrictions on the ways and the amounts that you can invest or access your funds.
Please check your individual account terms and conditions for information about access, additions and withdrawals.

We generally calculate interest on a sum deposited by cheque from the day after we receive it.

Changing Your Name or Contact Details
It is your responsibility to notify us of a change of name or contact details. You must also present your passbook to us so that we can update your details.
All notifications must be in writing and you should be prepared to produce evidence of any new name or address.
To change your details, we have a Standing Data Amendment Form, which you will need to complete and sign.
Clubs and businesses changing the signatories on their accounts will need to complete a New Mandate Amendment and supply minutes from the meeting where the changes were discussed. ID will be required for any new signatory.
If you lose your passbook then we will not permit any withdrawals from the account until satisfactory evidence of identity is received and a replacement passbook has been issued. This is to protect you against possible fraud. We can issue a replacement passbook at a cost of £10.
Please contact us immediately either in branch or on 01623 676350 if you discover that your passbook has been lost or stolen.
