An online petition is now available for people to have their say on the closure of HSBC.
You can sign online at http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/save-the-hsbc-branch-in-appleby.html
Customers of the branch were this week sent letters from the bank saying the closure is due to economic reasons and that the Kirkby Stephen branch will remain open.
The Appleby branch will close on November 30. Two full time posts and a number of part time posts are under threat.
