Joining Steam Ahead Credit Union

Anyone can join Steam Ahead Credit Union, provided they meet the membership requirements.  That means you must live or work in Swindon, or the surrounding villages, south of the main railway line that crosses the town.

It costs just £1 to join.  To open an account you will need to bring two pieces of personal ID with you to our office at Cavendish Square - your passport or driving licence and a recent household bill, and of course £1 to join and the money you want to start your savings account with.

Saving with Steam Ahead
You can save up to £10,000 with us and you can pay in cash or cheques, or you can set up a standing order from your bank account.

You can withdraw cash or we can give you a cheque if you prefer.  We do ask for 7 days notice for withdrawals over £100 or for cheque withdrawals.

We don't currently pay interest on the monies you save, but provided that we make a reasonable surplus in a year we do give a dividend base of the value of your shares over the year.  Last year this was 1%.
