Stevenson Welcomes Clydesdale Bank Move on Aberchirder Opening Hours

Local SNP MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the news from Clydesdale Bank officials that the opening hours of the Aberchirder Branch are to be amended and extended.

Mr Stevenson met with community representatives and received a petition from Aberchirder Community Council in December following the Bank’s decision to reduce the level of service provided in the Banffshire town. The MSP also attended a public meeting organised by the Community Council at which senior Clydesdale Bank officials were in attendance.

Welcoming the news contained in a letter from the Bank, Mr Stevenson said:

“This is very good news and is, I believe, broadly in line with what the community wanted to achieve.

“We now have slightly increased opening hours on Fridays and the bank is now open once again on Thursdays to cope with customer needs at the end of the week when most bank branches are at their busiest.

“In addition, I am aware that the Clydesdale Bank is keen to provide some sort of out of hours ‘advice service’ where customers can still talk to staff about their requirements and access information and advice and I look forward to this being developed.

“I should like to congratulate Aberchirder Community Council on an excellent and successful campaign. It’s now up to the community at large to make use of the facilities they have fought so hard to preserve.”

The new opening hours with effect from 15 March 2004 will be:

Mon, 9.15am to 12.00pm; Thu, 2.00pm to 4.45pm; Fri, 2.00pm to 4.45pm
