Cheadle Banking Hub opens in old police station

Published on 21 November 2023

We have now opened a new Banking Hub in Cheadle at Lulworth House, 51 High Street (the old police station). The new Hub is in a great location in the heart of the community and will provide local residents and businesses with basic banking and cash services.

Open from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, it will offer a counter service operated by the Post Office, where customers of all major banks and building societies can carry out regular cash transactions. It also offers a Community Banker service where customers can talk to their own bank about more complicated issues.

Community Bankers will work on rotation, with a different bank available on each day of the week:

Monday: Santander

Tuesday: Barclays

Wednesday: HSBC

Thursday: NatWest

Friday: Lloyds

While the new Hub is up and running today, we are still currently identifying properties in the town to provide a permanent home for the Banking Hub. In the coming months we will provide updates and the Hub open today will remain open until the permanent Hub is up and running.

Gareth Oakley, CEO at Cash Access UK said: “We’re pleased to open the doors of the new Hub today. We know how important access to cash and banking is across the country, therefore in some of the communities where we’re delivering a new Hub, whilst we’ve been finding suitable properties, negotiating leases and refurbishing properties, we’ve opened temporary Hubs, so locals can get access to the services they need. We will hopefully be able to move quickly and we will provide an update on the future home for the Hub in the coming months.”

Councillor Paul Keeling and Councillor Gary Bentley  (chairman and vice-chairman of the Cheadle Town Council’s Business, Tourism and Environment Committee) added: “We have been working with Cash Access UK to provide a banking Hub in our town and are delighted that a suitable venue has been found in the town centre; 51 High Street, Lulworth House, Cheadle, Staffordshire (the old police station), which will provide access to various banking facilities for the residents of Cheadle and the district.”
