Community/cooperative Banks

Recommended Posts

I don't wish to use any of the main street banks in the UK, is there anyway of 'doing my banking' without inadvertently supporting the system? I done a quick search I found one growing organisation of 'community banks' in London, which seems to be opening more branches. I live in the midlands but couldn't find anything similar near to where I'm from..

Years ago we used to have building societies, but they all got privatised right and turned into banks. Do any other community bank type organisations still exist in the UK now? If not why not?

Do it, move to a mutual. It'd acheive far more than Cantona's idea.

If there wasn't a fee for using another banks ATM i certainly would.

I'm just waith the bank that has the most ATMs around over here.

I'm with the Coventry BS. You can use any cash machine for free.

If you can transfer money for free you could keep a current account with a major bank and just transfer enough into it every week (or whenever) to have easy access.

I've had to do this too due to there being no Co-op bank in my town.

Still definitely worth while.
