The closure of many major high street banks in our area continues to present the club with a number of challenges relating to banking income taken as cash or cheques as well as obtaining the required levels of change to facilitate cash transactions. This, alongside the huge shift towards card payments being the preferred payment method for our members and guests (just 9% of payments in 2023 were by cash or cheque), means that The Drift will follow many other clubs in the area by going cashless from 1st April 2024.
