Since both of Topsham’s banks closed, residents have been left with one ATM – in the Coop store in Fore Street – but now a second machine has been installed at the newly-opened community hub in Nelson Close.

East of Exe has co-funded the cash point with Devon County Council at Nancy Potter House which is run by Topsham-based charity Estuary League of Friends.

Ian Garcia, who co-founded East of Exe in 2010, said: “Other than the supermarket, there is nowhere for the community to withdraw cash.

“So when the charity suggested we co-fund the monthly charge for the cash-point at the new hub, it seemed like the ideal way to help.”

Rachle Gilpin, chief executive of the Estuary League of Friends, added: “Nancy Potter House is an ideal place to house a cash-point, which is an essential service for many people.”
