I'm really fed up! I have banked with HSBC since I was 18 and it was the Midland (silly old fart I hear you chorus) and I'm now too old to enjoy walking the best part of a mile to the nearest branch; especially considering how much profit they are making out of me (us). I used to go to the Newington Causeway
branch, or the cashpoint at the Student Union in emergencies after that closed, but both are long gone.
Does anyone know (a) why they, and just about every other major bank, have abandoned us, (surely not the regeneration or was that a handy excuse) and (b) of any campaign to get local banking facilities restored? Sort of feel like I'm living in the banking Orkney's!
