Gareth Writes to RBS re Bank Closures

Many local residents have been in touch with me about the announcement last week from RBS that they intend to close several of their branches across North Staffordshire, including their Hanley Branch. There is no hiding from the fact that this is incredibly disappointing news, not only for local customers, but Hanley as a whole.

I've written to express my disappointment at this decision and question why there has been no consultation, just simply a press release blaming the rise of online banking and the decreasing numbers of people using the branch. I know from local small business owners how important a personal relationship with your local bank manager can be and no online app or person at the end of the telephone can replace that.
