The Town Council are opposed to the closure of the only bank in the town and are working hard to prevent the closure and find alterative options.  If you feel strongly about the closure, please write to your local MP Mark Harper.  The Council have produced a letter template that can be used by residents and businesses –

Barclays Bank Closure Letter Template (113.9 KiB)

You can send your letter directly to Mark Harper, alternatively email your letter to the Town Council at townclerk@newenttowncouncil.gov.uk, drop it off at the Council Offices or at the Country Corner shop in Newent where there will be a box to put it in.  The letters will then be forwarded to Mark Harper’s office.
