CASH ATMs in the town (Automated Teller Machines) were all out of action yesterday Sunday 16th March 2014 we have been reliably informed.
There are only three ATMs in Hedon; at the HSBC, the Lloyds and at the big-Hedon Co-op – and apparently all three were not working!
Small towns – residents and traders – are quite dependent on ATMs for cash, particularly on days when the banks are closed, so with all three down the effects can be extremely annoying and frustrating.
… And to make matters worse, we have been told that the Hedon Co-op run out of “cash back” cash!
We have dug into our archives and have discovered a way to mark this occasion – we would like to award the three banks with a Yorkshire Puddin’ Award.
So for your efforts – or lack of efforts – on Sunday 16th March 2014 we disrespectfully award the:
- Co-op bank
each with the dishonour of being called A BIG YORKSHIRE PUDDIN’.
Incidentally, the last time we awarded this dishonour was on Yorkshire Day August 1st 2010. Who did we award it to? You’ve guessed it – the banks!
