El­more/Lock­ing­ton/Rochester Com­mu­nity Bank® Branch is get­ting ready to cel­e­brate its fifth birth­day to­mor­row.

Chair Kate Tay­lor said the lo­cally-owned and op­er­ated branch had grown from strength to strength since it was es­tab­lished in Oc­to­ber 2011.

“Thanks to com­mu­nity sup­port, and the hard work of our branch staff, we have been able to build the busi­ness steadily over the past five years,” Kate said.

“We plan to con­tinue to share this suc­cess with our com­mu­nity through fu­ture com­mu­nity Spon­sor­ship pro­grams and share­holder div­i­dends.”

Since open­ing its doors, El­more/Lock­ing­ton/ Rochester Com­mu­nity Bank® Branch has grown to boast $174,000 mil­lion in bank­ing busi­ness and 3938 cus­tomers.

Tra­cie said Rochester and sur­round­ing res­i­dents, traders and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions had all learned the ben­e­fits of bank­ing lo­cally.

“As our prof­itabil­ity grows, so too does our abil­ity to channel our prof­its into much-needed com­mu­nity in­fra­struc­ture and ser­vices,” she said.

“Our branch was set up by the com­mu­nity, for the com­mu­nity, so we are al­ways look­ing for ways we can help strengthen Rochester and dis­trict com­mu­nity.”

In the last year El­more/Lock­ing­ton/Rochester Com­mu­nity Bank® Branch has fi­nan­cially sup­ported:

• El­more Field Days Ag Art Com­pe­ti­tion

• Cam­paspe Academy of Sport

• St Joseph’s Pri­mary School

• Com­mu­nity Bank Net­ball In­vi­ta­tional

• Lock­ing­ton Pre-School

• Tak­ing the Ro­tary Club of Rochester’s Com­mu­nity Bus each month to give blood.

The Rochester branch of the El­more/Lock­ing­ton/ Rochester Com­mu­nity Bank® Branches will cel­e­brate its birth­day with cut­ting of the cake and is invit­ing the whole Rochester com­mu­nity to come along and join in the fes­tiv­i­ties.

Cel­e­bra­tions will kick off at the branch on Wed­nes­day at 11.00am. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion con­tact or visit one of our branches.
