MP BACKS LOCAL BANK

Local MP Nigel Waterson has expressed his concern that the Halifax branch on Albert Parade once again faces closure. This follows press reports that Lloyds Group, which took over Halifax last year, are planning to close hundreds of smaller branches, including ‘agency counters’ like the one in Old Town.

Nigel commented: “The bank in Albert Parade is now the only one left in Old Town, and it cannot be allowed to shut. Its cashpoint and counter service are a lifeline for traders and residents alike.”

“Old Town Conservatives fought a successful campaign to save the bank only 3 years ago. We even had support from the Shadow Chancellor George Osborne! Now we must fight alongside local people to keep it open again.”

Nigel is urging residents to sign his Petition, either in Albert Parade/Green Street shops, or in his office at 179 Victoria Drive.
