Martin disappointed at bank closures

Saturday 14th January 2012

It came both as a shock and a surprise to discover that the Northern Banks in both Ballyholme and Donaghadee were closing on the 23rd March.

It came both as a shock and a surprise to discover that the Northern Banks in both Ballyholme and Donaghadee were closing on the 23rd March. This will come as a blow to both the elderly and business owners in the areas who, up till now have enjoyed ‘local banking’. As a customer of the Ballyholme branch for as long as I can remember it was convenient to use and the staff were extremely helpful. That said I am glad, especially in the context of wider bank closures, that there are no associated job losses and this will come as a welcome relief to all those staff involved.
