Our Branch

As a second site for the Pine Rivers Community Finance Limited‚ Samford Community Bank® Branch officially opened on the 8th August 2009.

Brendale Community Bank® Branch

A group of interested community members was briefed by Bendigo Bank in November 2001 in relation to the proposal to establish Brendale Community Bank® Branch and a committee was formed to evaluate the proposal.

A preliminary public meeting was held to discuss the Community Bank® concept and the steps required to establish a Community Bank® Branch of Bendigo Bank at Brendale.

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 14 August 2001 and it was unanimously voted to proceed towards the establishment of Brendale Community Bank® Branch.

The branch was officially opened for business on 14 June 2002.
