It has been seven weeks since my first email to the chief executive of Lloyds Bank, asking for an urgent meeting with the area manager about the planned closure of Ottery’s branch in October.
Several chasings later and one or two holding messages from bank staff, I have got absolutely nowhere.
It is very disappointing that Lloyds, which is planning to close the only remaining bank left in the town, has decided to display arrogance and high handedness in this way.
Along with many other local councillors I didn’t even receive a letter about the closure, I had to read it on Ottery Matters Facebook page instead.
Back in April, I asked for an urgent meeting. We are now in June and soon the summer holidays will be upon us, leaving only a short run down to the proposed closure.
I really do think that an hour’s meeting with me is the least I can expect as Ottery’s Devon County Councillor. Ignoring an elected representative in this way is just disrespectful and unacceptable.
