AN OPEN day will be held at a post office tomorrow (Friday) to discuss banking options for people affected by two imminent bank closures.
Wentworth and Dearne MP John Healey, who has campaigned against the closure of Wath’s HSBC and Yorkshire Bank branches, will attend the event at Wath Post Office.
Yorkshire Bank is due to close on May 12 and HSBC on June 23, which would leave the town without a bank.
Mr Healey pointed out that people could still bank at the town’s post office, where branch manager Jas Parkin and area manager Dawn Penty will be available to talk to people who have concerns or questions about banking.
More than 1,200 people signed Mr Healey’s petition against the bank closures and he has called for banks to have to pass tougher tests when they plan to shut local branches.
