Council buys bank


The future of Much Wenlock's town centre cashpoint has been secured after the town council succeeded in buying the former Barclays bank.

The town council have been in discussions with Barclays about its premises at 10 High Street since it closed in October last year, and recently announced they had succeeded in buying the building.
The council intends to create a community hub offering information and advice and may even move their office to the site.

A statement from Much Wenlock Deputy Mayor Daniel Thomas praised the ‘high level of co-operation’ from Barclays saying, “The council’s objective in purchasing the property was to retain the ATM in the High Street, providing a free to use cash facility, and to create a community hub for all to use.”
