Eden Credit Union

The study group for Eden Credit Union has established a bank account, appointed Committee Members, and is now seeking to find 1000 members in Eden to become a reality.

A Credit Union is for local savings and loans that runs on a co-operative basis for the benefit of its members. Low-interest loans are available to members, and at just 1-2% interest, this means that if you need to pay bills, buy a new car, have a holiday, you can afford to borrow without "breaking the bank".

You can pledge your support (this is a non-binding pledge) through the website and it literally takes a couple of minutes. There are plenty of links to further information about Credit Unions, details of the progress of the group and news of meetings at

Chamley Arms Premises Licence

The plans for the pub - as presented at the Parish Council Meeting by Phil Pepper (March 2011)

The plan *appears* to be to have two flats (disabled downstairs) as holiday lets. The current dining room as a carvery is due to be closed if and when planning is permitted for the new build at the rear of the pub.

We hope the LOUNGE BAR will see plenty of new customers. Especially with the new carvery. Go eat there!! There is no need for any new build behind the pub.........

An application has been submitted to Eden District Council for a new Premises Licence by Phil Pepper and Mandy Simpson. (Ask on Camp for their references). The premises application should be displayed publicly, and at 50m intervals around any building/premises over 50 square meters - it is currently missing.  If anyone has seen the missing application(s) and can inform the rest of the village as to its content, please let us all know in the comments box below.
