    A reminder to ALL SPC members! 13th Oct 19 at 3:59 PM
    Hi all, The time of year for declaring all your saving is here again!!


    Count up day begins on 31st October! So you still have time to pot a little more and then prepare to count up the contents! When you're ready please declare on SPC 12 HERE please!!

    Whether it's a little or a lot, it's money YOU SAVED that would all possibly have been spent...so be so very proud of it!!!

    Please, just as soon as you can - come to the link below and pop your Total on.

    See you soon here!



    If you wish to join us, please go to the same link above. Then just ask and you'll be made most welcome.


    Please everyone, DON'T use coinstar to change your cash! They take around 10% of YOUR MONEY!!!!

    Metro Bank have a Magic Money Machine (aka Coinstar) in their branches. Takes zero % of your money.
    Unlike some here, I am not omniscient. If I am wrong correct me. I won't take offence.

    I don't know if it's available to non NatWest customers or if every branch has them but my local NatWest branch has a coin deposit machine which is free to use.

    However, from what some SPC members have said over the last couple of years, I think most banks now provide this service.
    Thanks so very much indeed for your help, I much appreciate it.

    Amazing potting, IWillSucceed!!!!!! A really fantastic amount for your first year so be extremely proud of yourself!!!!


    Sorry to see you'd put it in the wrong place, however, if you wish, you can copy & paste your above post and pop it on SPC 12! If so, just edit your other, wipe out all you already typed there, then paste the above post.

    Good luck with whatever you decide and congratulations!!!!!
