Please sign the petition to stop Lloyds in Ponteland closing!

I was completely taken aback when I received news of Lloyds’s unilateral decision to close their Ponteland branch.

The horse has bolted! Lloyds is the last branch in the village, and I am extremely disappointed that they haven’t been able to come up with an alternative option that would safeguard access to cash and retain physical banking in the community.  

Lloyds have said that customers can use the branch in Newburn, but residents have said this is over an hour away by public transport.

I have backed a petition set up by local Ponteland resident, Christine Caisley to stop the proposed closure of Lloyds in Ponteland.  Please support Christine’s petition – we must save this branch!
