Our Branch

A group of interested community members was briefed by Bendigo Bank on 14 September 2000 in relation to the proposal to establish the Sandringham 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 Sandringham.

As a result‚ an independent consultant was engaged 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 1 August 2001 and it was unanimously voted to proceed towards the establishment of Sandringham Community Bank® Branch.

The branch at Sandringham was officially opened for business on 6 September 2002.

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.
