Knaresborough Banking Hub location confirmed
Cash Access UK, the organisation set up to protect nationwide access to cash, is delighted to confirm that the new Banking Hub in Knaresborough will be located at 15 Kirkgate, Bowling Green Yard, Knaresborough, HG5 8AD.
The Hub, when it opens, will offer a counter service operated by the Post Office, where customers of all major banks and building societies can carry out regular cash transactions, It will also offer a Community Banker service where customers can talk to their own banking provider about more complicated issues, Monday to Friday, 9.00 – 5.00pm. Community Bankers will work on rotation, with a different bank or building society available on each day of the week. They are usually provided by the banking providers with the most customers in the local area. A schedule will be confirmed nearer the time.
