Sussex’s first Banking Hub opens in Shoreham-by-Sea

Published on 8 March 2024

Cash Access UK has announced a new Banking Hub in Shoreham-by-Sea is now open.

The new Hub is located at 63-65 High Street and is the first to open in Sussex.

While many people are comfortable banking and paying for things digitally, there are still over five million adults in the UK that rely on cash and face-to-face banking services. Banking Hubs allow customers to carry out regular cash transactions within a shared space on the high street.

The Hub offers a counter service operated by the Post Office, where customers of all major banks and building societies can withdraw or pay in cash or pay bills, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. It also offers a Community Banker service where customers can talk to their own bank about more complicated issues on the day their bank is in the Hub:

Monday: HSBC

Tuesday: NatWest

Wednesday: Barclays

Thursday: Lloyds

Friday: Santander

The Hub was recommended by LINK, the UK’s cash access and ATM network, following the announcement of the final bank branch closure in the town.

The Hub is open as of today and will be officially opened on Friday 15 March 2024 by Tim Loughton MP.

Gareth Oakley, CEO at Cash Access UK: “Banking Hubs are already making a real difference in communities across the UK. This is the first to open in Sussex and I know it will make a real difference to local businesses and people.”

Tim Loughton, MP for East Worthing and Shoreham: “Delighted that Cash Access UK has been true to its word following the review we requested, and a new Banking Hub will be opening in Shoreham High Street soon allowing access to no fewer than 5 major banks following the closure of all bank branches in the town. It will be a great relief for my constituents that they will still be able to bank locally and with a wider selection of banks.”
