Chamber Knaresborough Banking and ATM Update – 2022
The loss of all seven banks and building societies, as well as all but two of Knaresborough’s town centre ATMs, had a significant impact on the town. Not only due to loss of local amenities, but also reduced footfall and other challenges for the local business community.
Knaresborough Chamber campaigned against banking closures and more recently has worked with local councillors to help address the needs of local businesses and work towards solutions to the town’s banking problems.
Current banking projects include a multi-bank Banking HUB, the re-instatement of a Market Place ATM and a community branch of Newcastle Building Society in the library. Both the Banking HUB and Newcastle Building Society projects will include provision for the business community.
Newcastle Building Society are also looking to recruit staff to join their Knaresborough team. For more information, visit https://www.newcastle.co.uk/careers.
