Last Friday I convened an urgent meeting with Lloyds Bank PLC to discuss their awful decision to close the branch in Melksham on 15 February 2022.
I pushed Lloyds hard to reconsider this disastrous decision . I also asked Lloyds as a bare minimum to consider opening a mobile branch service to cover Melksham and I am pleased to update you that Lloyds will consider if this would be viable and keep me updated.
I made the point that the notice is not reasonable. The alternative they have said for local people is the post office - I don’t think that’s good enough for loyal customers. I will also be following up with Melksham post office to talk to them about capacity etc and the impact of this decision.
I will continue to make the case to Lloyds to reverse this decision and I look forward to updating you all on my progress.
