Wave Community Bank

Wave Community Bank


I believe and promote ESCU as much as I can, They have always been good to me, So helpful, So understanding, and do provide a very professional service, I am not 100% sure about Changing the name to Wave Community Bank,
I would personally prefer ESCU would follow a great number of other Credit Unions and Open a prominently located "Branch" As getting to Hove town hall, Then pass the reception desk before you see someone, I do remember the days when ESCU had a "Branch" in Queens Rd, Brighton, Still, a little out of the way, But so much easier to get too and be seen to by one of the wonderful staff members,
I just wish ESCU would follow all the other credit unions and find a place in a high st somewhere, St James's Street for example off my head, An old empty shop for years, and that its owners would love "Some" rent for the building.
ESCU Location now is Not very beneficial for customers nor volunteers, At Hove town hall, It must be So Hard to find New customers, where a High St Location would be so much easier to Promote Membership, I do wish someone at ESCU could at least look into opening a more accessible Branch. I miss the ease of old queens road, Hove Town Hall is NOT the right place to be. and it is a Big shame, ESCU could easily double/triple customers IF it was located in a better place. Please, ESCU Stop wasting money trying to Promote yourself, JUST find a more prominent position in a high st with easier access/parking/direct contact with your members
Open and Clear for all to see,

The changes in the payday lending regulations and the demise of payday lenders such as Wonga and Wage Day Advanced has shown a change in how people are borrowing.

A new research project commissioned by the Carnegie UK Trust and Barrow Cadbury Trust and carried out by Toynbee Hall and Coventry University showed that:

‘The collapse of the payday loan industry in the UK has led to more people turning to their friends and family for financial support, a new report has revealed.
