NRCC, at their regular monthly meeting in the Community and Arts centre, last night decided that they would organise a protest outside the Royal Bank of Scotland Branch in Nairn to show their concern at the effect the intended closure of the branch will have on businesses and individuals in the town. The protest will take place on the morning of Saturday 10th March.
Recently there was a meeting in the town in which David Richardson of the Federation of Small Businesses and local MP Drew Hendry spoke of the ongoing effect that bank closures were having on rural communities in Scotland and the damage more closures could cause. Video of that meeting here.
Good luck with your protest and I do hope that common sense prevails. I had to drive to Aviemore from Moray recently to get cash. Reason being I couldnt get cash locally due to the adverse weather conditions. None of the ATM machines within about a 30 mile radius had cash in them. I fully understand the logistics of keeping the machines topped up when the weather is so bad. But losing the Nairn branch will be devastating for people like me, who live nearer to Nairn than to Elgin. Forres branch already closed. Grantown branch closing soon apparently too.
I understand this will be a national day of protest
