Photograph of My Money March

Goldfield's first 'My Money March' group to visit a local business walk to Natwest Bank. During their visit they find out about Natwest Tring branch and ask for a bank loan to provide them with the money to prepare for their fund raising 'My Money March Tea and Art Afternoon' in aid of a charity, which will be proposed and voted for by the children at Goldfield and to help raise funds to improve Goldfield Schools outdoor areas.

Customers used to visit their bank regularly to pay money in and get money out of their accounts. Businesses would visit daily to pay money in before the bank closed so that it could reach their account as soon as possible.
