Steve Reed MP says: “Norbury needs a bank”. Sign my petition

NatWest have announced plans to shut down their Norbury Branch on London Road on Tuesday 23rd July. This unwelcome news comes after several banks in the area have closed their branches in recent years. This is Norbury’s last remaining bank branch, and residents have raised concerns with me about individuals and businesses who are unable to do all their banking online.


Working with your local Labour councillors Leila Ben-Hassel and Matt Griffiths, I am urging NatWest to rethink this closure. Please sign my petition by clicking here.


If Labour wins the next General Election, we will make sure every community including Norbury has access to high street banking services through an in-person banking hub. We will boost high streets by replacing business rates for local retailers and will put 13,000 more neighbourhood police on our streets to tackle rising crime.


Don’t forget to sign my petition.
