Westhill Councillor Comments on Royal Bank Closure Decision

>> 25 March 2017

SNP councillor for Westhill & District David Aitchison is calling on the Royal Bank of Scotland to show loyalty to communities which have supported the bank through its difficult times.

Cllr Aitchison has said the bank should “pause and reconsider” the decision to close the Westhill Branch.

Commenting, he said:

"There is clearly concern in Westhill about the decision of RBS to close its Westhill branch. We are all aware of the growth and convenience of online and digital banking but many people in our community still value the personal face to face service at a local branch.

“Westhill is an economically vibrant town of close to 12,000 people which is both regionally and nationally significant. If RBS can close the branch here they can do it anywhere.

“I will be calling on RBS and the UK Government as the major shareholder in the bank to pause and reconsider this decision and show some loyalty to the local communities who supported RBS through difficult times."
