A retailer in Oxfordshire has installed a free cash machine in Ardington, becoming the first ATM provided under a partnership between PayPoint and Link.

Under the scheme, Link has pledged to install cash machines in locations with no access to free ATMs. The ATM was installed at the Grocer Chef tearoom and general store on Ardington high street.

Owner Keith Grieg said: “In a village, a cashpoint can make a real difference, particularly to those who cannot travel into town.”
