DELORAINE & DISTRICT Community Bank ® Branch celebrated its tenth birthday in July.

“Thanks to community support, and the hard workof our branch staff, we have been able to build the business steadily over the past 10 years,” Chairperson Lyn Hayward said.

“We plan to continue to share this success with our community through future grants programs and shareholder dividends.”

Since opening its doors, Deloraine & District Community Bank® Branch has grown to boast $104 million in banking business and 3800 customers.

Lynn Hayward said Meander Valley residents, traders and community organisations had all learned the benefits of banking locally.

“As our profitability grows, so too does our ability to channel our profits into much-needed community infrastructure and services,” she said.

Our branch was set up by the community, for the community so we are always looking for ways we can help strengthen Meander Valley.”
