Helston Banking Hub opens in its temporary home

Published on 18 March 2024

We are pleased to announce the opening of a temporary home for the Banking Hub in Helston. The Hub is located at 19-21 Coinagehall Street 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: HSBC

Tuesday: Santander

Wednesday: Nat West

Thursday: Lloyds

Friday: Barclays

While the new Hub is up and running, Cash Access UK will continue the search for a permanent home in the town.

Gareth Oakley, CEO at Cash Access UK: “I’m happy to announce the opening of the temporary Banking Hub in Helston, where residents will be able to access cash and face-to-face banking services. I would like to thank Helston Town Council for their support in helping us to bring this temporary Hub so quickly to the community. We are working hard to progress the permanent home for the Hub and we’ll have more news for the community soon.”

Helston Town Council: “We are delighted to see Helston’s Community Banking Hub open its doors in its temporary location. This will provide vital financial services and support for Helston and the surrounding communities, around 40,000 people, who depend on the town for access. It will also come as a great relief to local businesses as they will no longer have to travel to other towns to conduct day-to-day transactions, making Helston a more attractive option for new investment. We would like to thank Cash Access UK for their commitment to this project and ongoing efforts as they look to secure permanent premises for the Hub.”
