I think you'll find that all the TSBs that are old C&Gs currently have planning applications in for cash machines. That's certainly the case around here.

In Devizes, after much huffing and puffing, they finally got planning permission for the rebrand to TSB, but have left one old C&G sign on the wall, in the position where they're applying to knock a hole for the cash machine to be fitted.

Having drove past a Lloyds TSB that must have recently been refitted and is now a TSB, I certainly see what you mean. The green lit-up poster display borders appear to have been covered with some white material, and it did look decidedly LLoyds TSB. It does, however, have a cashpoint.

It's a grade ninety-something listed building. Was the town hall many centuries ago.

Yeah, Cashpoint is specific to Lloyds. The generic term is either Cash Machine or ATM.

No I've fixed it, it was the board time he was referring to.

I'm not entirely sure why I refer to cash machines as 'cashpoints', as I've never been an LTSB customer - I should be referring to a cash machine as a 'Hole in the wall'...

Yes I know, I was talking more personally in suggesting that as I'm a Barclays customer I should be calling it a hole in the wall and not a cashpoint, but as it originally came from me saying a TSB had a cashpoint, when it should have been cash machine, I've confused everything anyway - many apologies.

Also it was a crap name that they somehow trademarked and, fortunately, have now moved on from.
