Local MP and Councillor meet with HSBC

caergwrleLocal MP, Mark Tami, recently met with HSBC officials regarding the recent announcement that HSBC are set to shut their Ewloe and Caergwrle branches.

Mr Tami was joined by local county councillor, Cllr David Healey, and they raised their concerns about the proposed closures with HSBC’s Area Director, Martin Lyons, and branch transformation manager, Roy Lewis.

Mark Tami said; “I was really concerned when I heard of the proposed closures, particularly as I had previously been told that there were no plans for any further closures. I am particularly concerned about elderly constituents who rely on these branches. Some of these people may not be able to get to branches in Wrexham, Deeside or Mold.

“HSBC will be offering people assistance with their online banking features. If any of my constituents would like to take them up on this offer then please contact my office.

“They also explained that some banking services will be available from the Caergwrle Post Office. HSBC will be offering assistance in how to utilise these services as well – again please contact my office to take them up on this offer.”

Councillor for Caergwrle, Mr Healey, raised the issue that if the Caergwrle branch were to shut then the village would be without a cashpoint.

Mr Tami confirmed that HSBC would address this issue; “I had assurances that they would explore possibilities. They will be looking at different options and assessing where would be best to put a cashpoint.”

To contact Mr Tami regarding this issue or to take HSBC up on their offers then please call his constituency office on 01244 836350
