HSBC should re-think its plan to close its branch in North Walsham according to local MP Norman Lamb.
Losing the bank from such an important site in the Market Place could be a real blow to traders and customers in the town. HSBC has announced it plans to close the branch at the end of November.
"I want HSBC chiefs in London to explain themselves and to think again. We need to keep our high streets alive!" says Mr Lamb.
Ed Maxfield and local MP Norman Lamb are pressing County Hall to explain the decision to cut Bacton, Knapton, Trunch, Antingham and Paston out of the Poppybus service. They want to hear from you if you are affected by the cut.
"Local residents are already campaigning to get County Hall to change its mind. A number of people spoke to Norman on his recent 'village tour,'" says Ed Maxfield. "Norman and I want to hear from you if you are affected."
Speeding through villages continues to top the list of local concerns according to Liberal Democrat campaigner, Ed Maxfield.
"I am working closely with Norman Lamb to press for action. Over the summer, residents in Cromer Road, Mundesley, North Walsham Road in Trunch, on the coast road and North Walsham Road in Bacton and in Paston have all raised concerns about speeding. Worries about road safety in Overstrand persist too."
Liberal Democrats have called on the government to act quickly to support plans to protect Bacton Gas Terminal and nearby villages from flooding and coast erosion.
"We need the government to plug the funding gap for this major project," says Ed Maxfield.
"Norman Lamb secured meetings with key ministers before the new Prime Minister took office in the summer. We need to make sure that the issue remains at the top of ministers' "to do" list. We cannot wait for another tidal surge to remind them of the need to act."
