Dowd, now the Member of Parliament for Lewisham West. at the Annual General Meeting the current Mayor of Lewisham Sir Steve Bullock with Lewisham Plus Credit Union President Frank Whittle was there to congratulate the credit union on its 25 years’
service to the local community and to present long service awards to five of the founder members. The credit union is planning more special events for different parts of the community throughout the year.
In October 2017 “A Matter of Life and
Debt” has been an uplifting and positive TV documentary series exploring the important and life changing work carried out by credit unions up and down the country. The Credit Union was very pleased to have been selected for the BBC One series featuring
the good work of the credit union sector and how members are supported to manage their finances in the wake of welfare reform and a tightening in the credit market. It was also great news that the jubilee year could be celebrated with this great exposure with
founding members Frank Whittle, Liam Carlisle, Lisa Treece and Paul Treece. Who are still heavily involved with the credit union and feature in the documentary
