It will be holding meetings in Lampeter and Cardigan with Plaid Cymru.
Following an announcement of closures of NatWest branches last week, the Farmers’ Union of Wales (FUW) has announced two open meetings with Plaid Cymru to discuss a way forward with local MP Ben Lake and AM Elin Jones.
The branches in Lampeter and Cardigan will both be affected, as FUW warned more rural services closing were contributing to rural depopulation which could have a ‘severe effect’ on local economies.
The meetings will take place on Thursday, December 21 at Lampeter Rugby Club and Thursday, January 18 at the Guildhall, Cardigan. Both meetings will commence at 7.30pm and are open to all.
FUW Ceredigion CEO Mared Jones said: “The closure of those banks will have a detrimental effect our local towns, as they serve not only villages close by but many of the neighbourhoods in surrounding areas, as well as providing employment to local people.
“We are therefore holding two open meetings with our local elected representatives to discuss a way forward and I hope many of you will be able to join us.”
