Great news folks, the people of Nelson are set to get a major boost, with the introduction of a new regional banking hub in Stoke.
The Government, in partnership with the New Zealand Bankers Association, has selected Nelson - and more importantly Stoke, as one of four pilot Smart ATM hubs in New Zealand.
The non-branded hub will provide an area for customers of any bank to do their banking and get staff assistance if required. The participating banks are Kiwibank, BNZ, TSB, ANZ, ASB and Westpac.

Six-month leases are becoming more common in Nelson as landlords realise they can gain more income from marketing their properties to tourists over summer.
Renters are finding themselves evicted at the busiest time of year, when everyone is looking for accommodation.
Has this happened to you or anyone you know? We'd love to hear your comments. You might be contacted for a story we'd like to do on six month rentals.
Anyone got one that's in the way. Happy to remove and pay if necessary. Cheers.
A challenge facing too many young men is the sense that they have to live up to the unspoken rules of masculinity – clichés such as “boys don’t cry” and “toughen up”.
White Ribbon encourages everyone to challenge the unspoken rules, so we can let boys and young men enjoy their individuality and define themselves as men who have respectful relationships with themselves and their partners – creating happier, healthier communities for us all.
