New note sparks discussion at Birch Green

Residents at Birch Green spent time recently inspecting the new five pound notes.

The note, recently introduced by the Bank of England, is no longer made out of paper, and instead is manufactured from a polymer designed to last longer and allow for greater security features.

The new note prompted a discussion among our residents about the way currency has changed over the years. The verdict on the new note? It doesn’t feel real!
