Tynedale Community Bank
Tynedale Community Bank provides a local community based alternative with our range of affordable loans and secure savings*. Our services are open to all residents and those working in Northumberland.
Fully regulated, we are a professional but friendly and approachable organisation in existence to provide a local service, not to make a huge profit.
Our key aims include:-
encouraging regular savings for adults and children
providing affordable loans tailored to your circumstances (including to those vulnerable to high interest lenders e.g. pay day lenders and loan sharks)
Tynedale Community Bank celebrated its official launch at Hexham Abbey with the Archbishop of York in November 2015. Since then, our membership has grown quickly with people joining us from around the region wishing to support our ethos and values by either saving with us or lending from us or a mixture of the two.
You can join by visiting our website or by popping into one of our information points which we are setting up around the county. These are manned by trained volunteers, helping us to raise awareness of the bank and how we can help people.
Please consider supporting us by becoming a member.
If you would like to get involved further, why not join us as a volunteer? It’s an interesting and worthwhile way to help your community and it’s fun too!

Naughty but nice Puddings!
Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
Over the weekends and holidays there are always times when your children need some chill out time, or to fill an hour or so, or they say the dreaded 5 letter word - BORED! Well, our KidsZone is here to rescue you and them from these moments. Full of puzzles, colouring in sheets and activities from films and programmes there is lots to keep busy!
