NatWest Bank Closure 24/2/2015

The first thing we heard about the closure of the local Natwest bank was in letter form this week. Apparently the news came as a bit of a shock to the Hebden Bridge branch Staff as well.

Silly Billy’s is opposed to the closure of the bank not only from a Business perspective but also from the fact that it is now commonplace to close important community resources here, there, and everywhere in the UK. The bank argue that the customer base in Hebden Bridge is not large enough to continue the operation of the branch in the Town. We argue that this is not the case and that in fact Nat West Bank is important not just for businesses locally but also for the residents of Hebden Bridge that use the bank’s services.

Consequently we have started a petition against the closure and this is available to sign in Silly Billy’s Toy Shop, we would like you to sign if you are a Natwest customer and similarly opposed to the Branch closure.

Christmas is a Coming

On Thursday 20th November, Hebden Bridge saw the Christmas Lights being turned on. The very next day at Silly Billy’s Spiderman became embellished in Tinsel… go Spidey !!

The Toy Shop is now resplendent in its Christmas Tinsel-elevated garb. Also we have some very decorative lights in the Window but are going to wait a week or two before initialising the LED Icicle lights, a very cool addition.

Please come in and visit us and take a look at our Christmas Stock.
