Local businesses are working together to get Bowen back on its feet as soon as possible with Queensland Country Credit Union providing services to Members tomorrow from inside the doors of local florist, Floral Notes.
Tropical Cyclone Debbie caused damage to the branch which has forced the Credit Union to remain closed and local Area Manager, Ross Meier was increasingly concerned about Members’ ability to access funds and services during this time.
"Many of our Members in Bowen and Collinsville rely on our Staff to access their funds and other products, so finding a temporary solution where we could provide these services has been a priority."
“We’ll open our temporary branch within Floral Notes at 87 Herbert St Bowen today between 10.00am and 2.00pm and we are currently considering whether or not tomorrow will be an option as well.
"Services will be limited to small cash withdrawals.
"Our Members will also need to start thinking about putting insurance claims in when they are ready and we are here to help them with that. They can lodge claims 24 hours a day too by calling 132 480."
Queensland Country Credit Union will commence repairs on their branch over the weekend and return to their Williams Street location as soon as it is safe to do so.
