New cash machine at village hall in May

A CASH machine in Sonning Common which was raided will not be replaced for up to 12 weeks.

A CASH machine in Sonning Common which was raided will not be replaced for up to 12 weeks.

It will not be put back in the wall of the former NatWest bank in Peppard Road but will be installed at the village hall in Wood Lane instead.

Parish clerk Philip Collings said preparatory work would need to be done at the hall, which would take 10 to 12 weeks.

Thousands of pounds in cash was stolen when the machine at the former bank was targeted by raiders  in the early hours of February 21.

The crimals used CS canisters to blow up the machine.



A NatWest spokeswoman said: "The ATM at the Sonning Common branch was damaged significantly and it would take a considerable length of time to re-instate it in its current location.

"We will install one in a new, permanent location as quickly as possible. In the meantime, customers can still access the free-to-use ATM at the post office/One Stop Shop in the village."
