READER LETTER: Closure - Great shame for town

We have been informed this week that Swinton Insurance’s Gainsborough branch is to close a week on Friday.

This is a great shame for Gainsborough.

Not everyone is comfortable to use online searches to insure their cars and property.

It is reassuring to actually speak to a person to ask their advice on such important matters, especially if you have to make a claim with your insurance company.

The team in Swinton’s are terrific, so helpful and understanding and will be missed by many people who like to do their business face to face. Not everyone can just get in a car and toddle off to Lincoln or Scunthorpe.

I believe many people who use Swinton’s have put in complaints about the closure of this branch.

It will be a sad day when the doors finally close.

A big thank you to all the Swinton’s team for their exceptional and professional service to the local community and wish you all the best for the future.

Jane and David Toward
