City MP Mark Lancaster has spoken up for residents in Wolverton.
Mark has been contacted by numerous residents from Wolverton dismayed at the announced closure of the Nationwide branch in the town.
Concerned by the impact it will have on the high street, for which there are currently plans to regenerate, Mark spoke to Nationwide in order to try and protect the branch from closure.
Mark said "For many in the Wolverton area the branch is the only way they are easily able to do their banking without having to travel miles. It is clearly well utilised and a draw to many on the high street. I was pleased to be able to stress the importance of the branch to Nationwide and hope they will take the strong local feeling into account especially considering the regeneration project taking place and the bright future the town has."
