Mayfield Road bank to close

posted 1 Oct 2010, 04:03 by South Edinburgh Net Admin
The Bank of Scotland is intending to close its branch at 55 Mayfield Road at the beginning of November.

The reality is that more and more of us are in a position to conduct banking business by telephone or via the Internet and the costs of doing so are very much smaller. On the other hand there are many local business people and local residents for whom telephone or Internet banking is not the answer. Difficult decisions.

I am writing to the Bank to ask them about this and to see if there is any prospect of it remaining open or maintaining the cash dispenser. Some local residents are writing to the bank in a similar fashion and if you wish to do so the address is below.

Branch Manager,
55 Mayfield Road
