Machine is a success

Friends of a landmark Matlock Bath building have been delighted with the success of its cash machine this year.

The Pavilion Group, which was set up to safeguard the future of The Grand Pavilion, announced that in August, for the first time ever the use of the cash machine topped its 7,500 target.

This figure is up by 71 per cent on the previous year.

Group chairman, Gregor Macgregor, said: “We have run a big campaign to get people to use the machine more and we are succeeding.

“In August we earned £464 in rent from the machine and, for the first time, got the use up to 7,500 transactions, so we will receive the top rate of 15.4p for every additional transaction.”
