Covid-19 has made the world a cleaner place, constantly spraying surfaces and sanatising hands, which is great, but does it really mean we have to stop cash? Notes are now plastic and coins don't rust so it can all easily be cleaned. Places that aren't taking cash say they aren't using it for your 'safety', but you're more likely to catch covid in a busy pub with poor social distancing than you are handing over some money after a meal! Being a cashless society is dangerous, it means many things: no pocket money for children, no change for the hungry homeless, no carboot or garage sales, no more money in birthday cards, no more piggy banks for children or from the tooth fairy and no more having a choice!

If we go cashless, that means every transaction you make will be recorded, you won't be able to do any of the above and more, your money will be controlled. It will affect our children's lives not being able to learn the value of money. Just think about what a cashless society would do to most of us!
