We are sorry to bring you the sad news that Mike Hull, a founder member of the Credit Union, died on the 19th June, aged 92. Mike worked tirelessly for the ideals of the credit union and firmly believed that everybody should have a second chance in all respects, and fair treatment including help towards financial independence. Mike was chairman of the credit union for many years. He carried on volunteering until about five years ago. We are all proud to carry on his ideals.

Through the summer and autumn of 2016 Stroud Valleys Credit Union put on eight performances of Saved!, a drama loosely based in the traditions of the mummers/pantomime/European street theatre.
Written by local wordy Jonny Fluffypunk, Saved! lays bare the world of tight domestic finance, the temptations of easy loans and the dramas played out daily in the residential streets of everywhere. It was performed by four well-known local actors and artistes, including Jonny, Ellie Holliday, John Broadbent, and Mark Abbott.
Take a look at the film about the event and enjoy the show!
