Banff Councillor Starts Royal Bank Petition

>> 6 December 2017

Banff & District SNP councillor Glen Reynolds has started a petition to try to persuade bank bosses to change their minds over plans to close a local bank.

The Royal Bank of Scotland announced last week that their branch in Banff’s High Street is set to close next year. The announcement came just months after the town’s Clydesdale Bank closed.

Commenting, Cllr Glen Reynolds said:

“I am urging people to support my petition to oppose the local branch of the RBS in Banff from closing in May 2018. Having access to your local bank is vital, and expecting people to travel long distances to visit their bank is unacceptable. The people of Banff deserve better than that, not least when staff are being told they are under threat of being made redundant just as nine executives of RBS will be receiving grotesque share bonuses totalling £16m.

“Our High Street deserves better and so do the loyal customers of the bank, many of which have been loyal to the bank for many years, including local businesses.

“We need banks to support customers, not abandon them. There will be a number of very unhappy customers that have been very loyal to RBS but now be thinking if it was worth it. I want the RBS to see the impact this will have on the people of Banff and stop the closure.”
