Smartcards go live at Bracknell
The moment of truth has arrived – cash will no longer be accepted on the Bracknell site.
From Monday, payment at all tills and through all vending machines on the Bracknell site – except in conference and training rooms – will be by smartcard or Food Card only.
Branch Partners visiting Bracknell should book in at reception as normal and then purchase a Food Card for £2 from a card issue/refund machine (CIRM). These are situated at various points around the site.
The card can then be loaded with cash-value at the cash loader. There is no limit on how much cash-value can be loaded.
On leaving you can re-insert your card and get any money remaining on it and the initial £2 fee.
