From December 2014 to March 2015, a strong campaign was mounted to keep 'the last bank' in Eccleshall open, including :-

  Meeting with the Chief Executive of Nat West
  Meeting with the Chief Executive of parent co - RBS
  Presenting a 750 signature petition to the Borough
  Passing a motion in mian Council to write to
  George Osborne, Eric Pickles and Vince Cable
  asking them to keep the bank open
  Meeting with Eric Pickles to discuss the issue
  A motion in the House of Commons by Sir William
  Cash to discuss the planned closure

Whilst the bank still closed in March 2015, Nat West did agree to bring a mobile banking unit to support the town instead and since it started in August 2015, between 40 - 50 people attend every week in the hour it is on The Old Smithy car park.
