Barclay's Bank closure North Shields
The proposed closure of the North Shields branch of Barclay's Bank will cause much inconvenience to the bank's customers and will also deprive the town of an amenity which it has enjoyed for many years.
In recent times three other banks have closed their branches in the town, and if the Barclay's closure goes ahead the town will be left with only two banks.
In addition the town centre is about to be redeveloped which aims to attract new businesses, thereby giving the local economy a much-needed boost. The proposed closure would go against this plan.
We the undersigned urge Barclay's to reconsider their decision, and to keep their North Shields branch open.
