Kirkcudbright Banking Hub will be located at 15 St Mary's Street

Published on 1 September 2023

The new Banking Hub in Kirkcudbright will be located at 15 St. Mary’s Street (former Bank of Scotland 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. They are usually provided by the banking providers with the most customers in the local area. A schedule will be confirmed nearer the time.

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 Kirkcudbright.

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 Kirkcudbright Banking Hub page on the Cash Access UK website will provide updates as works progress.

Gareth Oakley, CEO at Cash Access UK: “After much anticipation from the local community, we are pleased to announce that we have secured the location for the upcoming Banking Hub. This new facility will significantly enhance access to cash services, positively impacting individuals and small businesses within the Kirkcudbright community.”

Alister Jack, MP for Dumfries and Galloway: “The Hub will be invaluable to the residents of Kirkcudbright when it opens, including those who rely on cash and face-to-face banking. I look forward to hearing updates on the Hub and upon opening seeing the beneficial impact on the community.”

Finlay Carson, MSP for Galloway and West Dumfries: “This is welcome news. Cash is still important to many and I’m sure the local community, including businesses, will value the services the Banking Hub will provide to the town.”
