Haslemere banking hub to be located on 12 High Street

Published on 25 August 2023

The new Banking Hub in Haslemere will be located at 12 High Street (the former Lloyds Bank premises).

The Hub, when it opens, 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 will also offer a Community Banker service where customers can talk to their own banking provider about more complicated issues, Monday to Friday, 9.00am - 5.00pm. Community Bankers will work on rotation, with a different bank or building society available on each day of the week:

Monday: Barclays

Tuesday: NatWest

Wednesday: Lloyds

Thursday: HSBC

Friday: Santander (am)

Finding the right location for a Banking Hub that is convenient, accessible and works for everyone often takes time so Cash Access UK is delighted to have been able to secure a convenient premise within the heart of the community. This development is a significant step forward in bringing a Banking Hub to Haslemere.

The team at Cash Access UK are now working hard to fit out the new premises and will update the community on progress and an opening date as soon as they can. The Haslemere Banking Hub page  will provide updates as works progress.

Gareth Oakley, CEO at Cash Access UK: “Banking Hubs play a vital role in serving the needs of communities across the country. We are delighted to have secured a suitable site for the Haslemere Banking Hub and will continue to keep the community informed about our advancements.”

Jeremy Hunt, MP for South West Surrey: This is great news for Haslemere and I know the hub when it opens will be welcomed by residents. I have been pushing for a bank of some sort for Haslemere for many months and am pleased that the new banking hub for the town is progressing well.

The Mayor of Haslemere, Cllr Jerome Davidson: "The Council is delighted that the location of the Banking Hub at the former Lloyds Bank building has been confirmed. This is excellent news for the town and its residents who have been badly impacted by the recent lack of access to cash and banking services."
