Royal Bank of Scotland is closing 259 branches resulting in 680 job losses after the state-backed lender said more people are choosing to bank online or on mobile.
197 NatWest outlets and 62 RBS branches and will be closed by mid 2018 as part of the move and 1,000 roles will be affected, two of which are Aberfeldy and Pitlochry, the nearest branch thereafter being 25 miles away.
These plans will have a damaging impact on people across the country – particularly older and vulnerable customers who depend on staff and services in their local branches. Accessing services online is not an option for many customers in the more rural areas. Travelling to the "nearest" branch will be an impossibility for some and a major inconvenience for others.

LET'S STOP THE CLOSURE OF THE ABERFELDY AND PITLOCHRY BRANCHES!
