Does anyone understand why we don’t have a single bank or building society or credit union in Forest Hill. Often High Street financial institutions are found near stations and estate agents. We have a very busy station and nine estate agents.
The Post Office is closing all its current accounts on 11th September, although I have learned today that they have a service called Everyday Banking which does mean you can make a deposit there if your bank is a participant in the scheme. I’m not sure if there are charges.
I understand that there is a move to cashless and online transactions, but why is it that when you find one bank, you find six nearby? For example Beckenham has a branch of all main banks and building societies, whereas we have not a single one.
