HSBC Fleet Petition

As you may already be aware, HSBC Bank have announced that they intend to close their branch in Fleet on 11th June 2021.

I am very disappointed that HSBC have made this announcement. This follows the recent closure of the Barclays and Lloyds branches in Yateley, even though I know that branches are highly valued, especially by older residents and small business owners who often pop in to manage their finances.

If HSBC bank accounts have to be managed at Farnborough, this becomes roughly a one to two hour return journey by public transport, which is clearly not in the best interests of our community.

If you want to send a signal to HSBC that they should keep their Fleet branch open, I would encourage you – and your friends and neighbours – to sign my petition below.

HSBC Bank Fleet

  • 1 Current Your details

To the Honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled.

The Humble Petition of the residents of North East Hampshire,

Sheweth,

That HSBC Bank have proposals to close their Fleet branch on 11th June 2021; further that this high street branch is particularly highly valued, especially by older residents and small business owners who often pop in to manage their finances; further that if accounts are moved to Farnborough, this becomes between a one hour and two-hour return journey by public transport, which is clearly not in the best interests of our community.

Wherefore your petitioners pray that your honourable House urges HM Government to take all possible steps to urge HSBC Bank to reconsider this decision and to make sure that the banking industry considers the social implications of their actions
 especially given the country's national sacrifice to overcome COVID-19 and the need for our high streets and retail centres to recover and regenerate thereafter  and the role high street banks play in supporting these efforts.

And your Petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray, &c
