As you may already be aware, Lloyds Bank announced this week to their staff that they intend to close their branch in Yateley on 29th August 2019.
I am very disappointed that Lloyds have made this announcement. This follows the recent closure of the Barclays branch 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 bank accounts have to be managed at Camberley or Fleet, 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 Lloyds that they should keep their Yateley branch open, I would encourage you – and your friends and neighbours – to sign my petition below.
