IT is hoped that Carluke’s own credit union branch will be set up in St John’s Church Hall within the next two months.

Organisers hope that the long proposed union – a satellite office of Blantyre Credit Union – will help provide better access to money for people who can’t get a bank account.

Members of the Blantyre-based enterprise are currently trying to recruit 10 volunteers to run a service within Carluke which will give users the chance to choose between six different loans.
