I was greatly disappointed to hear the announcement that Lloyds Banking Group plan to close their branches in Alford, Mablethorpe and Coningsby. This affects loyal Lloyds customers and staff, as well as local businesses and people who pop in to use the bank every so often.
Lloyds have questions to answer as there seems to have been very little consultation locally in relation to their proposals. Also, bank employees do not yet have clarity regarding their career prospects. They deserve answers as a matter of urgency.
I have written to the Chief Executive of Lloyds highlighting my concerns and asking them to reconsider the closures.
