A letter from the Member of Parliament representing Ceredigion, Mr Ben Lake:
FOR THE ATTENTION OF: Organisations, clubs, societies and charities in Ceredigion
Community Bank Accounts and Services
I have been contacted by several local organisations in recent months concerned about the way their community bank accounts are administered and the banking services available locally to organisations and societies.
I am eager to better understand the extent of the problem and to this end, I would be interested to know if you have encountered any difficulties with your community bank account, and whether the quality of the service that you receive has changed in any way in recent years.
I am aware that there are many demands on your time as an organization, but I would be very grateful if you could consider answering the short survey that I have prepared. You can complete the survey online here: https://forms.gle/rYSYHX5Vae3jX7Tb8
Or if you would like a hard copy, please email me so that a copy can be sent to you: email@example.com
The survey will close on the 1st of October 2021.
Please be assured that all responses will be treated as confidential and will be used solely to inform my efforts to raise any issues identified with banks directly, and, if necessary, in Parliament.
With many thanks for your co-operation.
