Access to Cash and Banking

This is an issue which I know affects a lot of communities in the Scottish Borders. 

Last year we lost another set of bank branches, after numerous closures over recent years and ATMs in areas like the Scottish Borders are now under threat too. 

I know that this is an inconvenience to many people, particularly elderly and vulnerable customers and impacts on businesses and community groups.

Please take 5 minutes to tell me how the loss of access to cash and banking is affecting YOU.

The Scottish Affairs Committee is currently carrying out an investigation into access to financial services, so this information will also be used to inform my questioning during those sessions as well.
