A banking hub in Knaresborough has officially opened its doors to customers.

An opening event was held at the site on Kirkgate this morning.

Cash Access UK, the not-for-profit company set up by 10 major high-street banking providers to protect the public’s access to cash, is behind the new facility.

Officials from the company, Harrogate and Knaresborough MP Andrew Jones, local councillors and the town crier were all in attendance at the official opening.

Cat Farrow, chief operating officer at Cash Access UK, said:

“Knaresborough is really thriving.

“It has got a lot of small businesses and people who need access to cash.”

Mr Jones, who cut the ribbon, described the hub as a “huge community asset”.

The hub, at 15 Kirkgate, Bowling Green Yard, offers a counter service operated by the Post Office, where customers of all major banks and building societies can carry out regular cash transactions, from Monday to Friday.

It also provides a community banker service where customers can talk to their own bank about more complicated issues.

The hub is open on weekdays between 9am and 5pm and the community bankers will work on rotation, with a different bank or building society available on each day of the week: NatWest on Mondays, Halifax on Tuesdays, Santander on Wednesdays, HSBC on Thursdays, and Barclays on Fridays.
