Anger over NatWest bank branch closure in Bilston

Readers' letters | Published:

In June this year, a branch of NatWest in Bilston will be closed and the customers left without a bank.


Bilston has a large contingent of independent businesses and this will be a great loss and inconvenience to them, and also to any residents which consist of a goodly amount of the elderly, myself included.

One of the main reasons stated is a fall in the numbers using the branches, which was actually encouraged by the banks themselves in pointing people/businesses towards internet banking.

Our account is with NatWest and they inform us that it is to be transferred to the Wolverhampton city centre branch.

This entails a round trip of over 20 miles, plus finding a parking place which is within reasonable walking distance of the bank.

The Bilston branch staff are friendly, helpful and very experienced and deserve better, as do the residents and businesses.
