The 5 notes will need to be exchanged at a bank now, coins after October/November. 10 notes can be spent at shops through Spring, 2018

Thanks, Alan.
This is such a pain in the butt!
But I'm glad they are at least dealing with the problem sensibly.

Are the 20 notes unaffected?

I have a couple of those along with a fiver, a ten, and some coins in a ziplock bag (with my Oyster card). DS1 may be headed that way in the next month so I'll probably give my stash to him.

The plan from the Bank of England is to begin issuing new plastic 20 notes in 2020, and it is usually within 6 months of issue that the old currency must be exchanged at a bank and cannot be used in shops.
