Royal Bank of Scotland Juniper Green Statement
On Friday 16 December a small group of concerned elected politicians and local community council chairmen met to discuss the threatened closure of the Juniper Green Branch of Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS). The group had received unsatisfactory answers to their questions from officials at RBS so would seek further clarification of issues raised by many residents in the valley communities of Balerno, Colinton, Currie and Juniper Green. The prospect of no banking in these communities would affect the elderly, vulnerable, community, business groups and those sceptical that online banking is either secure or practical for their needs. The mantra from RBS is … go to the local POs, visit our branch in Corstorphine, use our ATM at Hunter’s Tryst or be educated by our team of online experts.
