Last Bank in Town - Save Lloyds Bank Ystradgynlais

The decision by Lloyds to shut its branch in Ystradgynlais will see yet another Powys town left without a bank. This time it isn’t even one of our smaller villages but the second largest town in the entire County with a population of over 8,000.

This trend cannot continue, banks need to recognise they have a duty to provide in-person services. Not everyone uses online banking, particularly in rural areas like Powys.

Just last month the bank reported it had almost doubled its profits to £1.8 billion. Banks like Lloyds should show some loyalty to customers in rural areas who contribute to their operations.

All these banks have diversity and inclusion policies, yet none seem to consider the elderly or digitally excluded in them.

What is even more frustrating is both of Powys’ Conservative MPs stood against a proposed piece of legislation last December that would have protected access to cash in rural areas. Once again our local MP has failed to stand up for her Constituents and we are all feeling the impact.

Senedd Member Jane Dodds and David Chadwick will be presenting signatures to Lloyds Bank.
