Hurstbridge & Districts Community Bank® Branch
A group of interested community members was briefed by Bendigo Bank on 18 March
1999 in relation to a proposal to establish Hurstbridge & Districts Community
BankŪ Branch and a committee was formed to evaluate the proposal.
A preliminary public meeting was held to discuss the Community BankŪ concept
and the steps required to establish a Community BankŪ Branch of Bendigo
Bank at Hurstbridge.
As a result‚ the committee engaged an independent consultant to conduct a
feasibility study in relation to the proposal.
The results of the feasibility study were presented to the committee at a
meeting held on 23 March 2000 and it was unanimously voted to proceed with a
Community BankŪ Branch for Hurstbridge.
The branch was officially opened for business on 6 April 2001.
