Last week Holiday Coast celebrated its 50th Anniversary, inviting members to a very special morning tea at its Tea Gardens branch.
In this era when so many people chop and change jobs, the women who work at the Credit Union have notched up more than 50 years of continuance service between them.
“I love that we know our members, and just help our members in a very personal way,” Manager Julie Hammond told News Of The Area.
‘You get a lot of experience and loyalty from us,” Julie said.
Senior Sales Consultant, Roz Jones started in the banking industry when she was just 16.
She’s now been with the Holiday Coast for over 21 years and seen some amazing changes in that time.
“The start of the ATM was a big change,” Roz said.
Reminiscing she said, “A guy came up to the ATM in Hawks Nest on his horse.”
Long-time member Ann Browning was given the privilege of cutting the very large celebratory cake.
Julie Hammond summed up her decade at Holiday Coast.
“We feel very privileged to be working here.”
