David Green started this petition to HSBC Head Office

The Ramsgate branch of HSBC bank is among 82 that HSBC fat cats want to close. The high street branch is planned to shut its door on September 10. The nearest branch will then be at Westwood Cross. The bank will abandon its customers that do not or cannot use internet banking particularly the old or disabled that do not want to travel. Shop keepers wishing to deposit daily takings are not wanted.

These are difficult times for the high street. Internet shopping and COVID combined mean that the next year will see closures and the rest struggling. Ramsgate Centre needs to maintain footfall so that all can survive. A major high street bank breaking ranks and leaving the town at this worst of times is a real kick in the teeth for the town and its traders.

We need to let the fat cats know this is not the way to treat the town or their customers. They should consult over alternatives to closure and failing that facilitate transfers to one of their rivals more concerned for their Ramsgate customers
