Cash machines will charge a minimum fee of £20 for each withdrawal from Monday week.
Although the average withdrawal is only £20, banks have been insistent that in order to increase their profits the new charge will have to be implemented.
Local ATM user, Peter Thape withdraws £20 every few days, but is happy to pay the new charge.
‘I’m just grateful that the banks allow me to be a customer – thank you, banks,’ said Thape.
‘Although I won’t receive any money, I will still get the thrill of pressing all the buttons,’ added Thape.
