MP DISMAYED AS ANOTHER BANK FACILITY MOVED OUT OF NARBERTH

 

Simon Hart MP has expressed dismay that the mobile Nat West bank in Narberth is going to be placed on the outskirts of town and not in the High Street or main town car park.

NatWest is closing its Narberth branch later this year and replacing it with a weekly 45 minute mobile bank visit.

“The best of all options would be for it to be parked outside the old branch on the High Street but I can see that it could be difficult to guarantee spaces there each week at the same time,” explained Mr Hart who organised a meeting between NatWest bosses and Narberth community leaders.

“We were then told that it would be parked at the town Moor car park,” explained Mr Hart.  “However on making further queries I have now discovered that it’s going to be up at the Bloomfield Centre instead.

“This is a pretty stiff uphill walk and I really think that a lot of customers without cars would struggle to make it from the town centre.  NatWest is already removing the last remaining on-street cashpoint in the town and this is giving people another reason to avoid the town centre and its shops.”
