    Shops to stop accepting paper fivers.

    Bye bye paper fivers: shops to stop accepting old 5 notes

    New polymer notes featuring Sir Winston Churchill complete their takeover on Friday as old ones cease to be legal tender.

    Are you ready for 5.05.05.17, as the Bank of England has snappily dubbed it? Friday 5 May is when paper 5 notes officially cease to be legal tender, and the plastic fiver takeover is complete.

    Can I still spend the paper ones?

    Get the full story from the Guardian HERE




    OK, it is now past the fifth of May, but I am told that many of the banks will still take them in exchange.

    This will have to be done quickly as very soon the paper fivers are simply going to be worthless.

    There are still many vending machines that will not accept polymer notes or the new pound coins.

    They need to get their fingers out and get these machines adapted.

    Got to agree there Zathrus.

    The multi-story car-park that I use still hasn't had it's machines converted to accept the new polymer fivers OR the new pound coins. What'd worse is that the attendant cannot change this money for money that will still work.
