A flurry of Banking Hubs open

Published on 3 December 2023

Local dignitaries, residents (and even their dogs!), staff, partners and suppliers braved the cold weather and snow flurries last Friday to warmly welcome three new Banking Hubs in these communities.

There was a real buzz and smiles all round as we officially opened our latest Banking Hubs in Barton-upon Humber, Welling and Newton Aycliffe, bringing essential cash and banking services back to these towns.

Leader of the London Borough of Bexley, Cllr Baroness O’Neill of Bexley OBE, who made the Community request for the Banking Hub in Welling welcomed the Hub, saying how previously a lack of access to banking services was hampering residents’ lives. It was "at best an inconvenience, but for some a source of real distress as they lacked the necessary digital know-how or access. This Bank Hub will make a big difference to so many local people.”

Barton Town Council led a campaign to secure the first ever Banking Hub by community request for Barton-upon-Humber. Mayor of Barton, Cllr Keith Vickers said they were "delighted to see the return of face to face banking services to the community."

And in Newton Aycliffe, Paul Howell, MP for Sedgefield who engaged with Cash Access UK following the last bank closure in the town said the Hub "marks a significant step forward in safeguarding the financial well-being of our community and is a testament to our resilience and determination to adapt to the changing landscape of banking, ensuring that our residents and businesses continue to thrive."
