Bank boosts benches in Kilburn High Road
Financial institue says yes to new seating outside branch
OLDER shoppers in Kilburn will be able to take a well-earned rest after a bank bowed to pressure to allow a bench outside one its branches.
Lloyds TSB gave the green light to the new seating on Kilburn High Road after the Times publicised claims they had snubbed a request by the Pensioners Kilburn Older Voices Exchange (KOVE).
KOVE and Cllr Mike Katz (Lab: Kilburn ward) said they have repeatedly tried to get in touch with the bank to discuss the idea – but they had been met with a wall of silence.
However the bank, which received �17billion of public money in one of the UK’s largest ever rescue packages in October 2008, have said yes to the bench.
Cllr Katz said: “Its really great news that Lloyds TSB have agreed to a bench outside their branch.
“Thanks to the Kilburn Times for their help in publishing this issue.”
