RESIDENTS living in the west side of WGC will once again have a cashpoint on their doorstep.

A new cash machine is being installed outside Huttons at Marsden Road. The old one was removed when the post office was forced to close.

Manager of Handside Post Office before its closure, Richard Edlin, said: "We have been negotiating for this replacement ATM for three months now, and at last it has come to pass.

"The new machine will come into use on March 12. We have invited the mayor to cut the ribbon.

"This is another step taken to fulfil my promise that we would continue providing as extensive a service as we can.

"Although we are again providing a letter and parcels posting service, unfortunately we are not allowed to provide pension or benefit payments. We suggest that Handside residents use the Shoplands post office for those - the queues are shorter than those at the town centre post office."
