I AGREE with Peter O'Rourke regarding the closure of Barclays Bank in Corringham - See story: https://thurrock.nub.news/news/local-news/residents-anger-and-disappointment-as-barclays-shuts-another-branch-corringham-closure-means-just-one-branch-remains-in-borough-138048

Especially the claim from a Barclays person that only about 12 people use the Corringham branch. Has this person ever been in there?

If they have, they would see that a lot of elder people need to talk to the staff, in order to solve account problems.

Don't forget not everyone has the Internet.

Would they really like to drive to Grays or Basildon costing the parking charge or now the price of petrol or diesel?

Or take the time to take the bus.

Barclays Bank now need to think about the above.

Will Ian Lovelock be in the branch to answer the questions or leave it to the staff?
