Lloyds Bank have announced they are planning to shut their branch in Crewkerne alongside 47 other branches across the UK. After the closure of Natwest and Barclays, this would just leave Nationwide in the town with one cash machine left on the main street. We have launched a petition opposing the closure.
The local Liberal Democrat team know how important it is to have local bank branches in our area, particularly for elderly people who may not use online banking.
We have written to the Chief Operating Officer of Lloyds Banking Group to raise these concerns and to request that an impact assessment is carried out before the branch is allowed to close. We have also launched a petition to show the opposition to this closure in the community.
We will oppose this closure. Help us by signing the petition below.
