Here is one of our wonderful volunteers:

Peter Marlow

After a 32 year career with a major Bank in a variety of senior roles, Peter then ran a holiday cottage business in North Somerset for several years before retiring. In 1996, he was instrumental in saving the Curzon Cinema in Clevedon after it went into receivership and reorganizing it as a Community owned, not for profit business, with volunteers helping out on a day to day basis - just like Somerset Savings & Loans.
So with financial, marketing and business experience and time available to help in the community he responded to a local press article saying that SSL needed volunteers. That was about two years ago, since when Peter has worked with the marketing group. He has helped devise initiatives to grow the level of savings and particularly loans. He was instrumental in launching the new Business Lending scheme for small business owners looking to grow their business and increase local employment.
Peter is a great asset and as he says “I enjoy being involved in the financial world again, especially as SSL is locally based and non profit making. So it's our members who benefit, not big business shareholders.”
