Well, if the Ringmer rich keep all their banknotes stuffed in their mattress, then what's a poor bank to do ?

Presumably why the cashpoint, that has been hanging out of the wall for months, hasn't been repaired !

Must be the flawed LDC Planning Regs, there is a cash point less that one hundred yards away at the newsagents.

Barclays is a rubbish bank anyway - in the forefront of almost every banking scam exposed and clearly run for the benefit of its shady top bankers rather its customers or shareholders. Doubtless a complete coincidence that the incoming chairman sacked the relatively-honest (by banking standards) CEO yesterday? Certainly shows the new chairman's priorities. The idea that customers can conveniently use the Lewes branch or Lewes Post Office instead is ludicrous - an excellent illustration of how little this crooked organisation cares for its customers. How can we best get a better, honest, bank to come to replace them in the area? Is there such a thing? Our family accounts will all be going elsewhere when the Ringmer branch closes.
Learn from the Greek experience: get your money out of dodgy banks like Barclays while there is still time.

Barclays is not a Bank I use or would use. However, it's not "dodgy" it cannot be compared to a Greek bank that's just daft.
As a bank domiciled in UK it must abide by FCA rules. It must pass regular "stress tests" which it does. This is a bank with good liquidity (no risk) each branch has to make a contribution to the Barclays retail group if it can't then is it not bad business to allow it to lose money?
It's a fact that retail branches are underused in many areas. Customers like online and telephone services now. Result is branch closures.
Don't confuse retail banks with investment banks. Now that is a whole different story, they have been "dodgy" Barclays leading the way.

I have a Barclaycard left over from the time when there was something like 1% cashback for using it. I still occasionally use it; but call in to the Ringmer branch when passing to pay it off, as I can park there. For the same reason I still have a Girobank account, which I can service at Laughton and other friendly and parkable sub Post Offices.
But with the above news I will probably return my Bcard, and explain why.

QUOTE OF THE MOMENT
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
