The closure of the RBS Bank on Rodger Street in Anstruther left a lot of customers angry and disappointed. Despite protests by the Anstruther Community Council and others in the community to keep the branch open or at least keep the ATM in place , RBS closed the branch and removed the ATM. The mobile bank — two days a week for about an hour each day — is also being eliminated, making it inconvenient for anybody to do their banking with RBS unless they travel to St.Andrews.
MP Stephen Gethins believes a concerted campaign by area residents in protest of these closings may influence RBS to return the ATM to Anstruther. PEOPLE ARE NEEDED ON FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 12:45 AT THE BOARDED UP RBS OFFICE ON RODGER STREET. About 10-minutes of time will enable a photo to be taken showing how many people are displeased by the closure.
Please turn out on Friday for this photo opportunity, and bring along family, friends and neighbours — the more the merrier!!
