Douglas helped to launch the Clacton branch of Essex Savers at Clacton Library on Friday, 10 September.
Essex Savers provides a "local ethical banking" alternative for people to save in a safe place, and seeks to provide "Fair Finance For All". The Clacton branch will be open every Friday from 3pm-5pm at Clacton Library.
Douglas says, "It's great to see Essex Savers doing so well locally, offering people the chance to save their money safely and manage their finances securely. And it's great to see our local library being used as a focal point for the community".
