Our Branch

A group of interested community members was briefed by Bendigo Bank in 2007 in relation to the proposal to establish Heywood & District Community Bank® Branch‚ and a committee was then formed to evaluate the proposal.

The committee worked tirelessly over the next three years on an awareness campaign‚ conducting a feasibility study and then selling shares via a prospectus to realise their vision of a locally-owned bank branch.

Our depositors are protected under the Australian Government’s Financial Claims Scheme (FCS) which provides protection and quick access to deposits made with a bank, building society or credit union in the unlikely event that one of these institutions fails. Find out more here.
