Sir Michael Fallon receives and supports petition against bank closure from New Ash Green Cllr Claire Pearsall

A petition was launched against the closure of the New Ash Green branch of Lloyds Bank, the closure of which will lead to the village being left without a single bank and have a profoundly negative impact on businesses located in the Shopping Centre.

Cllr Claire Pearsall handed the petition containing 906 signatures to Sir Michael Fallon this morning who will, in turn, present this to the Chairman of Lloyds Banking Group. Sir Michael fully supports the residents of Ash & New Ash Green and feels the closure of the branch is detrimental to all who live and work in this rural area
