I’m sure you’ll know that Barclays Bank closed it’s branch in Lightwater last month.
Even more disappointing is that they’ve left their bank branch boarded up in an unsightly way. As a business they exhibit no respect to the local business community, or to shoppers and visitors to Lightwater village centre who have to see a boarded up shop.
The least that Barclays Bank could’ve done would be to have left the property in a pleasing aspect. Just boarding it up is not good enough from a major business. I’ll be writing a stern letter to Anthony Jenkins, Barclays chief executive, and possibly copying in a few more senior execs while I’m at it.
