Tessa attended the unveiling of a pair of new cash machines which have been installed on Glastonbury Highstreet.
The town was set to lose all of its cash points when Lloyds, which will be the last bank left in the town, closes in April.
However a company called Cardtronic has now installed two ATMs in the High Street, both hosted by Co-op.
Neil Smith, store manager of Radstock Co-operative Society's Glastonbury store, said: "We are delighted that Cardtronics UK have agreed to the installation of the ATM machines following our approach to them shortly after we heard the news about the bank closures.
"With the new service, we are able to offer our customers the vital convenience of shopping where they can also access their money easily.
"We are sure this won't just be an added plus for our own business, but it will strengthen footfall and spend for the entire high street of Glastonbury."
One of the cash points will be inside the store and the second ATM will face the street through the shop front. Both will be free.
“I am absolutely delighted by this initiative. I have been a member and supporter of the co-operative for years and would like to thank Cardtronics for offering the people of Glastonbury free access to their cash.
Glastonbury is a completely unique highstreet and the loss of the banks imperils our local businesses.”
