Please be aware that the ‘old’ £10 note will cease to be legal tender on 1 March 2018.

After that date only the ‘new’ polymer note can be spent.

Spend them or give them to charity but don’t lose them.

Check your pockets, wallets, purses and savings boxes to make sure you have dug out all the old notes.

Some shops will be giving the old £10 notes in change up to the last minute, you can ask for the new notes but that may not always be possible.

Those people who find the old notes after 1 March will still be able to take them to the bank for exchange.
