The sole ATM which was left in the community was heavily used, resulting in long queues and also cash running out.
Last week Mark was delighted to see a new ATM has now been installed at Colourbox following this campaign.
“The one ATM which remained in Mastrick after Clydesdale withdrew from the area has been repeatedly running out of money, or leaving people facing long queues to withdraw their cash, and that had an impact on footfall for local businesses.
“While some might have resigned themselves to the loss of banking facilities in the area, I have been pushing hard for some time to get a new ATM in the shopping centre, and am aware that the owner of Colour Box was quick to make his business available as a site.
“I am delighted that we finally have another ATM installed, as this will provide better access to cash for residents and shoppers, and it will be a major boost to the local businesses in the area. It’s a really positive development for Mastrick.”
