Bringing cash back to Thatcham high street with OneBanx

It's not just the floors, furniture, and paint that are fresh in our refurbished Thatcham branch - we also have an extremely exciting new addition in the form of a OneBanx kiosk, officially launched at a special event on Wednesday 19 June.

The machine was unveiled to guests, including the Mayor of Thatcham and Chief Executive of the Building Societies Association (BSA), with a special demonstration from the OneBanx team.

Dean Scott talks about the OneBanx kiosk at the launch event on 19 June

What's a OneBanx kiosk?

We are immensely proud to partner with OneBanx (a GLORY company) whose technology enables financial institutions like us to provide community access to cash.

The kiosk enables customers to pay money in (both small business and personal banking customers), as long as they have the right account details. It also allows customers of a range of banks to make cash withdrawals of up to £500 a day. You can find the full list on the OneBanx website. Most importantly, it’s completely free to use and open to everyone. You will need to download the OneBanx app on your smartphone in order to use the kiosk, the app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Dean Scott, Director of Proposition and Distribution, spoke at the event. He commented:

“The closure of bank and building society branches is a significant and growing problem on high streets up and down the country, with over 6,000 closed in England in the last nine years. One of the knock-on effects of this is the lack of access to cash, which many vulnerable people, elderly people, community groups, and small businesses rely on.

“Thatcham is an area that has been adversely affected by bank branch closures in recent times, with the last bank in the town closing in 2022, leaving Newbury Building Society as the last financial services provider left standing. As a mutual organisation, we want to open our doors to the whole community – making banking more accessible, supporting the local economy, and doing our bit to help our high streets thrive.

“Our new partnership with OneBanx and the installation of the machine in our Thatcham branch, which enables people to pay money into their accounts as well as withdraw it, is one of the ways we can achieve this.” 

See for yourself!

Being able to deposit and withdraw cash is necessary for our communities to thrive, so we’re delighted that the OneBanx kiosk is now at home in our Thatcham branch, ready for anyone who needs it. Visit our team, who are ready and waiting to help, at 4 High Street, RG19 3JD.
