Councillors ask Barclays to stay in Frodsham

Frodsham Town Councillors Liam Jones and Adam Wordsworth have joined Cheshire West & Chester Councillors Lynn Riley and Andrew Dawson in a plea to Barclays to retain a presence in the town.

Barclays recently announced its intention to close its Frodsham branch. HSBC and Nat West pulled out earlier in the year.

The councillors have sent a letter asking the CEO of Barclays to try to secure a staff-free branch in Frodsham.

Overton & Five Crosses ward councillor Liam Jones said:

The changes we are seeing in the banking sector are not going to be stopped. But they can be an opportunity for us to bring something new and exciting to our high street.
