ASHBOURNE’S Mayor has helped the Ashbourne branch of a banking group re-launch its brand.
Councilor Steve Bull cut the ribbon at Ashbourne’s Lloyds Bank in Compton, which has split from TSB.
The opening ceremony, which was one of biggest changes in the bank’s 250-year history, came shortly after the launch of TSB on September, 9 and Lloyds bosses are hailing the change a ‘revitalisation’ of the brand.
Owen Woodley, managing director of Lloyds Bank Retail said: “Today’s announcement marks another milestone in Lloyds Bank’s history.
“The revitalisation of the brand is an exciting time for the bank but also for our customers.
As part of the changes for the banking group, bosses have introduced a community fund which has been established to help charities in Ashbourne area.
Four charities have been selected and it is now up to the public to vote for which charity they feel deserves the most funding.
The two charities with the most votes will receive £3,000 while the two charities with the least votes will receive £300.
