Banking is returning to Blaxland.
The Blaxland branch of the Bendigo Community Bank located in the Blaxland Day and Night Chemist opens tomorrow (May 4) and will provide a full range of banking services to the local community.
Following the closure of the Commonwealth and Westpac banks in the Lower Mountains town, the Blaxland Chamber of Commerce organised a team of locals who formed a committee to find some way to restore banking for both residents and businesses.
The Bendigo branch is the result of nearly three years of work. There is a Bendigo Bank at Katoomba and a branch at the Blackheath newsagency.
