Registered in 1992, Holdfast offers a wide range of accounts to both adults and children throughout the Witham area.
It began as a small but significant local financial business, started by a dedicated group of people to help people.
In 2002 Holdfast credit union celebrated 20 years of service to the members. Shares reached a couple thousand pounds and this allowed hundreds of pounds to be lent to members. The anniversary acknowledged the hard work done by both volunteers and the then three members of staff.
Holdfast has an office in Newland Street but also outreach centres in Braintree, Greenfields, Kelvedon and local primary schools. The credit union is seen as a friendly place in the locality which is expanding rapidly. Open to members who live or work in Witham, Braintree, Maldon, Halstead, Coggeshill, Kelvedon, Great Dunmow, Tiptree & surrounding villages. The credit union is one of three credit unions in Essex to join forces to form Credit Unions Together (CUT). A secondary co-operative cooperating to do things that help achieve their aims that they would not be able to do by themselves.
