NFRN members have reacted angrily to news that Barclays customers will be stopped from drawing cash out at Post Offices from the New Year.

Reacting to the news, NFRN National President Stuart Reddish, himself a Subpostmaster in Sheffield in Yorkshire, said: “With all the other high street banks continuing to offer services through the Post Office, there is no reason why Barclays cannot continue to do so.

“This decision will hit tens of thousands of elderly and vulnerable people, especially in rural areas, who rely on their local Post Office since Barclays closed many local branches.

“Barclays has made the wrong decision and needs to understand the massive impact this will have. It must reverse that decision now,” he concluded.

Mr Reddish added that the NFRN’s National Council is meeting in Liverpool on Monday October 14 and Tuesday October 15 and will debating how to bring further pressure to bear.

The NFRN has many thousands of sub postmasters among the owners of the 15,000 stores it represents.
