Save our Bank Branch: call on Lloyds Bank plc to reverse its decision to close its South Brent branch

South Brent is a vibrant and active village on the southern edge of Dartmoor in Devon with a population of 3043 in 2012. The Village has a number of shops including two general stores, a butcher, a delicatessen, two pubs, two hairdressers and, for now, a bank.
Lloyds Bank has announced that it intends to close its branch in the Village in March 2017. If the South Brent branch closes, a visit to a bank branch will involve a round trip of some 12 miles.
The Branch in South Brent is currently well used and helps, in particular, to support local businesses and elderly residents. Closing the Branch will be a significant blow to the Village leaving many residents without access to banking facilities, reducing the number of people coming into the Village and requiring local businesses to travel significant distances to deposit cash.
Lloyds Bank says that its purpose is "Helping the Communities in which we work" and "Playing a positive and proactive role in society". Please help us to convince Lloyds Bank to abide by its stated purpose and to change its decision to close the South Brent Branch.
We, the undersigned, call on Lloyds Bank plc to reverse its decision to close its South Brent branch.
