David was a member of the Credit Union Study Group in North Dorset that led to the expansion of First Dorset Credit Union into that area, ten years ago. He and his fellow volunteers opened branches in Gillingham (2007), Shaftesbury (2009), Blandford (2009) and Sturminster Newton (2010), with volunteers from all four branches meeting regularly as the Blackmore Vale branch, which he has chaired since 2009, when he also became a Director. David will be moving to the Orkney's, and is wished luck with his future ventures. Above David is pictured receiving a leaving gift from some other board members.
"I have hugely enjoyed my time with FDCU and Wyvern," says David. "We continue to face huge challenges as a business, as we have done since the economic crisis, and we are very fortunate to have such a dedicated and able staff at Bailey's, and such conscientious volunteers and Directors across Dorset and Somerset, to help us through the changes that will aid our progress in the months ahead."
