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.
