I WOULD like to make a point to those in authority of banks.

We have heard that within the next two months Halifax and Santander in Atherton will be closing and the Royal Bank of Scotland will only be open two days a week.

The only bank left will be TSB and I hear that is under threat too.

We have been advised to go to banks in Leigh or Bolton instead but what about the older generation, those in wheelchairs and those who do not have cars or other forms of transport to get out of town?

Not everyone, especially the senior brigade, are au fait with the electronic age.

Most want a one-to-one personal service and are against electronic devices.
