The Pantiles is a major visitor attraction. The decision of Barclays to close the Pantiles branch has seen the demise of the last bank branch at the lower end of Royal Tunbridge Wells. The Post Office branch closed years ago. So, here you are a visitor to the Wells and you wish to replenish your wallet. Barclays took their ATM with them.
Where to go? The railway station or Sainsbury? Hardly user- friendly for visitors wishing to spend money in that part of Tunbridge Wells.
Many visitors wish to shop at the top end of the town and use the Crescent Road car park. The condition of the public lavatories has deteriorated over the years. Worse still, the facilities close at 5.30PM and not 6.00PM as stated on the notice of opening hours.
Perhaps Councillor Jukes could bring his talents to bear to deal with these matters rather than pursue his crazy proposal to drive visitors and locals away from public transport by closing Fiveways to buses.
