Day 260 - September 16th

When visiting the bank today we managed to get some of the new plastic five pound notes which were launched on Tuesday.

the new notes, smaller than the old notes, are supposed to be cleaner, safer and stronger. On the front is the Queen ....


... and on the reverse Winston Churchill


An interesting feature of the new notes is a see through window with a Big Ben in gold foil.

Looking forward to seeing one of these. Going to need a new UK purse if they don't fold up.

Don't worry. They do fold.
