Good news on free to use cash machines in the West End

Last month, I highlighted the issue of the need for more free to use cash machines across the city.

I mentioned that I had written to a major national retailer about an ATM at one of their stores in the West End Ward to see if the company nationally was willing to consider contributing to the costs of this particular ATM so it could offer free cash withdrawals in the future.

I am pleased to advise that this retailer - the Co-operative Group - has reacted positively and has converted the AGM in question (at their store at the junction of Polepark Road/Edward Street/Brook Street) to free to use - see new machine now installed - right.

I had a very positive discussion with a representative of the Co-operative Group about this and am very pleased at the company's positive and speedy response.

Residents who live in the area around Polepark were some distance from a free to use ATM so the outcome is really good news.
