Cash Access UK, the organisation set up to protect nationwide access to cash, has confirmed that a new Banking Hub in Shoreham-by-Sea will be located on the High Street.
Our Member of Paliament, Tim Loughton, said "I am delighted to hear about the progress with Shoreham-by-Sea’s new Banking Hub, and I know my constituents will be too, especially as the first Baking Hub in Sussex. I look forward to visiting the Hub once it opens.
In 2010 I campaigned vociferously against the closure of HSBCs Findon Valley branch in 2010 then again in 2016 with Shoreham-by-sea branch closures. As banks persisted in closing, I was repeatedly contacted by concerned constituents who felt their access to their banking accounts were becoming less accessible.
Therefore, I am delighted that the people of Adur and Worthing are being listened to and that calls for the Cash for Access hub ensures that vulnerable groups such as the elderly remain closely connected with their finances."
The Hub, when it opens, will offer a counter service operated by the Post Office, where customers of all major banks can carry out regular cash transactions. It will also offer a Community Banker service where customers can talk to their own bank about more complicated issues, Monday to Friday, 9.00am - 5.00pm. Community Bankers will work on rotation, with a different bank available on each day of the week:
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 Shoreham-by-Sea Banking Hub page on the Cash Access UK website will provide updates as works progress.
