Soon to close HSBC Melksham

Plans to close the Melksham Branch of the HSBC have been slammed as ‘selfish’ and ‘short-sighted’ by local Councillor Jon Hubbard.

The bank have announced that they will be closing their Melksham Branch in March, advising residents that they will have to travel to Trowbridge or Devizes now to pay in money or use bank facilities.

“What a stupid short-sighted approach from HSBC,” Jon commented, “Melksham is a town that is growing, we are seeing more national brands starting to come to the town, hundreds of new homes are being built and HSBC think this is the time to leave.

“This is a selfish move from the HSBC that completely goes against the ethos they constantly spin in their marketing when they say that they are the world’s local bank.

“There has been no consultation on this, no opportunity for the community to respond, no chance for people to have their say. I have a business account and a personal account with HSBC and have heard nothing in advance from them on this, just the letter telling me that the branch will close. No attempt has been made to check what the impact would be on their customers. For someone like me with a car it's one thing, but for more vulnerbale people, and those depending on public transport this will be a bitter bitter blow.

“No doubt the top executives at HSBC will be having their usual bloated bonus’s again this year, whilst their customers are left hanging dry.”
