Cash machine installed at Marshall's Yard
Shoppers at Marshall’s Yard can now get instant access to the money in their bank accounts following the installation of a cash machine at the centre.
Following requests by visitors to the centre, a Lloyds TSB cash machine has been situated among the shops in Britannia House, between Connell’s Florist and Timpson Shoe Repairs.
The facility will offer fee free cash withdrawals and balance enquiries for account holders with a Link enabled card (issued by all major bands and building societies). Vodafone pay as you go mobile phone users will also be able to top up their credit at the machine.
The world’s first ATM (automated teller machine) was introduced in the UK by Barclays Bank in 1967, so it celebrates its 40th anniversary this year. It wasn’t until the early 1980s that they became widely used and now cash machines supply 63% of all cash to individuals.
Over 164 million plastic cards are in circulation in the UK giving access to a cash machine and 70% of the population regularly use them.
The number of adults who are regular ATM users is expected to increase by around 40 million over the next ten years, but the rate of growth in the number of ATMs is expected to decline.

Richard Hill, Marshall’s Yard Centre Manager, said: “We’re delighted we’ve been able to accommodate a cash machine on site – this was clearly something that visitors to the centre wanted to see. We take customer feedback very seriously, and if we are able to accommodate customer requests, we will do so.”
