Next up we have Wendy Ault, the friendly face helping our Members down on the beautiful Yorke Peninsula. She loves getting out on the road, checking out all the beautiful scenery of the area but, more importantly, making her way to those who need her help with their banking! You may have seen her happy snaps of Port Broughton, Ardrossan or Wallaroo on our Facebook page.
Read on to get to know the lady behind the snaps…

Q: Where is the best place to get a coffee near the branch?
A: Archie’s Diner has the best coffee but if I am looking for a quick fix, I pop over to the Yorke Café which is just next door to the branch. They also do a great coffee.
Q: How do you have your coffee?
A: Soy flat white.

Q: What do you consider to be the best product / service offered by Police Credit Union?
A: Our car loans have very competitive rates with no ongoing fees or charges.
