North Antrim MLA has commented on the announcement that the Ballymoney branch of Santander is set to close.
“Expressed disappointment at the news that the Branch In Ballymoney is to close. The last few years have seen too many local bank closures in the town. Local banking is a vital service. Not everyone is able to do online banking and even if that were the case there are still many examples of when visiting a bank is needed to complete a transaction. This news is also a blow obviously to the people who work in the bank and their rights must be looked after.”
