We do, however, have a bank for two hours on a Wednesday morning in the town car park, which I use when someone annoyingly sends us a cheque.

Most banks allow you to pay cheques (up to a certain value) in via an app on a phone.

Which ones? Neither of mine (RBS and Nationwide) do.

LLLoyds and Bank of Scotland.

Before this functionality I always used to post my cheques in. It was much faster than going into a branch.

Info answer: "It's the Birmingham and Worcester, 28ft below road level.  You'd have to ask Basil for the depth."
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Depth to be expressed as eg knee deep or over my head. Riders may range from 6-foot plus on a penny to toddler in a trailer.
I do not ride a great big Mercian, gangster tanwalls, fixed cog in the back.

NatWest were great and terrible depending on the local branch.
NatWest local branch - I remember those.
There's no longer a single branch in the Forest of Dean district, they closed the lot. Even the big towns just outside the forest, Chepstow and Monmouth, both closed. If I put my postcode into the website Stroud is my nearest, about 15 miles distant if I recall correctly. Only if you're a very strong swimmer, due to the small matter of the river Severn it's actually 45 miles. Central Gloucester is my nearest, that's about an hour to get to.

But the Severn has banks, shirley?

FFS Offshore team.    That customer wanted their backup link ceasing.  You ceased both of them.   You've had increasingly urgent emails telling you to get it rebuilt, so why the frack did you issue the new order with a date of tomorrow ?   :facepalm:
