Keeping Banking in Ampthill

Ampthill - Encouraging Nationwide Building Society to set up a branch in Ampthill 

Natwest Bank has announced the closure of their branch in Ampthill from 13th June 2017. The Bank is the only one in our town and serves 7,000 Ampthill residents and also those in surrounding villages.

Ampthill Town Council has learnt that Nationwide reacted to a similar case in Glastonbury, Somerset by setting up a branch in the town, after the community showed their support for the idea in huge numbers. So please sign the petition to show your support, so we can demonstrate to Nationwide that setting up a branch in Ampthill would be most welcome.

A representative of Nationwide has stated, "As the last bank is closing in Ampthill if the team at Nationwide Headquarters get enough requests come through this may be something we can potentially do for Ampthill".

Nationwide can be contacted at with your emails of support for the idea.

 Ampthill - The Past

 Carpe Diem


Ampthill is a town with a rich history that includes the imprisonment of Katherine of Aragon and the fact that the town provided the birthplace to the man that named New York, Colonel Richard Nicolls. 

There is little doubt that Ampthill has a more interesting and significant history than most towns of a much larger size. Its inhabitants are rightly proud of its past and are anxious to share their heritage with friends and visitors from further a field.
