  • ord make me an instrument of Thy peace,

    Where there is hatred, let me sow love,

    Where there is injury, pardon;

    Where there is doubt, faith;

    Where there is despair, hope;

    Where there is darkness, light;

    And where there is sadness, joy.

    Divine Master, grant that I may

    not so much seek to be consoled as to console;

    to be understood as to understand;

    to be loved as to love;

    for it is in giving that we receive;

    it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

    and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

    Dear Members,

    On behalf of the Board of Directors of your Credit Union I welcome you to this our 40th AnnualGeneral Meeting where we will present our annual report for 2011. This has been anotherdifficult year but I am delighted to report a surplus of 733,018 an increase of 319% on last yearsresults. Our loan book has continued to decline and at the end of the 2012 stood at 20,303,174- as against 22,971,742 at end of 2011. Members shares now stand at 45,018,549 at end of 2012(47,553,032 -2011).

    On the arrears side our provision for bad and doubtful debts has risen by 189,666 to 2,958,359.This is an ongoing source of concern for your Board and in the past year we have allocatedadditional resources to our credit control section. However in these difficult times ofunemployment and financial difficulty we are striving to treat members, who do encounterdifficulties in their personal circumstances, fairly and with sympathy. Again we would urge allmembers who may have difficulties in meeting their obligations to call to us at an early stage andwe will do our best t o help you.
