Gavin Williamson welcomes Barclay's 'Your Bank' scheme.

Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, welcomes Barclay's 'Your Bank' scheme.

Barclays is today launching a new trial in Wombourne focused on working with the local community to keep the last bank in town open on Gravel Hill. 

Eleven pilot branches across the UK will take part in the scheme which will see local branch managers re-instated, investment in the look and feel of the branch premises, along with a change of opening hours to include Saturdays.

Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, welcomes the trial and said: “I’m pleased that Barclays is not only retaining the last bank in Wombourne but are also increasing the staffing levels. This is excellent news for Wombourne high street and I hope the local community back Barclays to retain the last bank in town. It is a real credit to Barclays for supporting Wombourne, now we have to make sure we use the bank to keep this vital service.”
