The RBS branch on Bannockburn High Street is to remain open until the 12th of November, following meetings with Stephen Kerr MP. On this date, the RBS branch in the Thistles Centre will reopen for business.
Stephen Kerr said:
I am pleased that we have managed to agree that the Branch should remain open for longer. I would prefer it was not shutting at all but at least by talking to RBS there will now be a service in Bannockburn at least until the new branch in the Thistles centre is opened.
I am also working with RBS on introducing some measures that will help people get to the new centrally located branch as easily as possible. I will always engage with an issue in a positive manner and try and get some beneficial agreements in place.
Those that shout from the side-lines should reflect on the impact their actions and words can have on the staff involved. None of this is the staffs fault and they have behaved extremely professionally through what has been a very difficult period for them as well as the banks customers.
