Barclays set to close Gatley branch

Barclays Bank, GatleyBarclays have announced they plan to close their Gatley branch on Friday 25th August 2015, leaving the village with not a single bank and ATMs/cash points only at the Prince of Wales end of the village.

This would be a devastating blow for Gatley businesses who use Barclays, as they will have to use the nearest branch in Cheadle, crossing the A34 and dealing with the parking issues in our sister village.

Although Barclays say people will still be able to use the Post Office for some services, this is still not ideal.

Lid Dem councillor Keith Holloway has started a petition urging Barclays to reconsider, which you can read more about here and you can sign the petition here.

There’s a lively discussion on the Gatley Facebook Group that you can also join if you wish.
