Established in February 1999Companies House Number 142CUS
Since 2015 the credit union has been trading as what is now known as 2Shires Community Bank
Began as Cupar credit union in March 1999, solely in the Cupar area thanks to a group of dedicated volunteers who knew the people of Cupar needed an alternative option to the high street banks.
With support from Fife Council collection points were opened within the County Buildings of Cupar and an outreach point in Springfield church hall.
In 2004 the common bond was extended to cover the whole of the North East Fife and changed the name to reflect that. Collection points were opened in YMCA/YWCA Cupar, Town hall/ Library Anstruther, Guide hall Auchtermuchty and St Andrews (which sadly closed after 6 months due to lack of public interest).
There are plans to open other collection points in Newburgh, Tayport and hopefully other outreach areas if the support and volunteers become available.
North East Fife is run solely by volunteers, some of whom are the elected Board of Management, who meet once a month to discuss all matters arising and to consider any plans for the future movement of the Credit Union. All Directors have an active role within the Credit Union.
