Council responds to HSBC branch closure

Published Thursday, 01 December 2022

High street bank HSBC has announced it is closing 114 of its branches next year. One of the branches is in Market Bosworth.

Speaking on the shutdown Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council Leader, Councillor Stuart Bray said:

I am extremely disappointed to hear that HSBC has decided to close its Market Bosworth branch next year, the one remaining bank in the town, as this will be the loss of yet another high street bank and, of course, local employment.

It will undoubtedly have a detrimental impact on the residents and businesses of Market Bosworth and surrounding villages who currently bank with them, as they will need to travel further afield to Hinckley if they wish to see someone in a branch.

We are currently making contact with the bank to enquire if they will work with us to discuss providing alternative banking arrangements in the market town to help residents and local businesses.
