For two years, sub-postmasters have enjoyed having the “free” machines in their stores, often acting as the only source of accessing cash without travelling to the next town.
But now Post Office Ltd has admitted it should have been charging to keep the machines stocked with notes – and branches will need to pay bills dating back two years. In many cases, the cost runs to hundreds of pounds.
This in not good for our struggling rural communities, every day tasks in towns, like walking to an ATM to get cash, are not that easy in the countryside! In the same way a city slicker can walk to numerous bars stuffed with singletons, whereas a rural farmer in the countryside can pop to the local pub which is more likely to be stuffed with relatives!
