Crow’s Nest celebrated 20 years of community banking with a public event in Centenary Park on Saturday, 6th April.
Progressive Community Crow’s Nest Ltd opened their first joint venture branch with the then Heritage Building Society in 1999, followed in 2004 by the Highfields Heritage Community branch.
As other banks withdrew from Crow’s Nest, the Heritage Community Branch was there to provide financial services to residents of the district, with the joint venture returning $5million to the local community through local organisations and by funding community programs and projects.
Directors of PCCN say the partnership has simply been an outstanding success surpassing even their most optimistic expectations.
Progressive Community Crow’s Nest Ltd extended an open invitation to join in the 20th Anniversary celebrations with music by Slow Train Coming and street artists, food by Squealing Pig (Wofty Possum) assisted by the Lions Club and CWA, in Centenary Park.
