HOYLAND savers who stash coppers in jars or bottles will soon be able to have their loot counted at their local bank.

The NatWest on Market Street has announced details of its refurbishment which will include a new coin counting machine.

Media relations manager Sarah Binnie said: "The machine is like a 'Coinstar' machine only it doesn't charge you. You can bring in your coins in a big bag, pop your debit card into the machine and it will debit the money directly into your account. The same machine also pays in cheques."

Work is being done in the branch on Saturday March 7 but it will reopen on Monday March 9.
