Volunteers have begun their training as a staff at a credit union look to open a physical premises in Stamford.

A group of 12 people attended the first training session held by Lincolnshire Credit Union at the Stamford Citizens Advice Bureau.

The volunteers will undergo five more sessions before they are able to offer financial services from the bureau in High Street.

Lincolnshire Credit Union business and development manager Linda Burden said: “The first session went very well.

“I gave an overview of the union, what we do and what we want to do in Stamford.

“They asked a lot of questions and were very keen.”

Once the volunteers are fully trained the union hopes to be able to open during the week and offer a range of financial services to Stamford residents, including loans and advice.
