IT’S GOOD news that our Labour-led Welsh Government is investing £25,000 in Islwyn Community Credit Union. Credit unions are not-for-profit, community-based alternatives to traditional banks and payday lenders. People in Islwyn will be reassured to know that our own local credit union will remain secure, and continue to offer accessible loans and encourage savings.
