As you will be aware, local bank branches are closing. This is a national that, unfortunately, this lack of access to bank is starting to cause the Federation problems as we have to travel to Scunthorpe, Grimsby or Hull to pay in any fund directly into the bank. The Federation has ben using the Post Office to pay money , firstly in Goxhill and latterly in Barrow.
Whilst the Post Office will continue to accept money, they are now imposing restrictions that make this very difficult for the Federation.
As a result of all this the Federation has made the difficult decision to go cashless and we would ask that any payments are made through Tucasi (online payment system). We understand that this may cause people some problems, but we would like to assure you that we have been left with no choice but to make this difficult decision.
You will find a letter in a pack that has been sent to you allowing you to create a Tucasi account if you have not already created one.
Thanks again, and apologies for any inconvenience this may cause
