The credit union was opened for business in July 1989 as an Industrial and Provident Society Company number NO000116.
As of 2016 with around 800 members it is one of the smaller credit unions currently operating in Northern Ireland.
Operations and management of the credit union was carried out by volunteers from the Board of Directors, to whom the community owe a huge debt of gratitude.
The credit union received funding of a pilot scheme in 2016 which allows the credit union to complete a series of improvements including an extension to its opening hours.
The funds also enabled refurbishment of its reception area and training for local volunteers on skills to carry out their role in an effective manner whilst achieving a Credit Union accredited qualification.
The installation of a chip and pin service and the new longer opening hours on Tuesday and Thursday mornings has given the members a much-welcomed improvement to the service theyreceive and better access to the credit union.
The funding was part of a pilot exercise for credit unions in both rural and urban areas in Northern Ireland.
