Keep Padiham's last bank open.

This petition had 699 supporters

Santander intends to close its Padiham branch on 28th June 2018. This is the last bank in Padiham. Padiham is a substantial and growing town which deserves the presence of its own bank branch.

The elderly, less mobile and vulnerable will be most severely affected, facing a four mile journey to Burnley town centre to the next nearest branch.

During the floods of 2015, the Santander branch of Padiham became a focal point for the community; a place to drop off donations of clothes, equipment and money to help those who had lost everything. This was hugely appreciated. The bank also serves as a collection point for donations to the food bank.

Padiham has a vibrant business community who depend on their local bank to deposit their end of day takings. If residents are forced to travel to neighbouring towns for banking purposes they are likely to also shop there this will adversely affect the businesses in Padiham.  

We the public, petition Santander to reconsider and keep this last bank open without further delay for the residents and businesses of Padiham.
