Last Bank Standing. Don't let communities lose their only Bank

This petition had 2,790 supporters

Paul Manning started this petition to Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP (Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills)

Banks across the country are rapidly reducing their branch network leaving many communities without any form of banking provision. This is having a huge impact on the vulnerable and mobility impaired, the business community who need to bank their takings regularly, and visitors to the UK who need access to cash.

Glastonbury is one of the major sites of pilgrimage in the UK, attracting more than 750,000 visitors a year. In April 2016 it will have no banks left at all. 

The town of Glastonbury requests that Somerset County Council and the Government debate the importance of towns across Britain retaining at least one Bank branch so the business, residential and visitor communities can maintain the ability to carry out essential transactions.
