What's happening in and around Templestowe

Today I trundled off to The Pines in Doncaster East to bank some cheques at the local Bank of Queensland. Much to my surprise the bank was boarded up.

I spoke to a person at Centre Management and it appears their lease had expired. I asked if they'd perhaps moved somewhere else but the person had no information.

To me this was quite a surprise and came without warning. I would have expected some form of notification but I'd heard nothing. Perhaps I shouldn't be too surprised. When the St George at Doncaster Shopping Town closed, I only knew about that branch closing when I rolled up to do some banking.

I feel that perhaps banks should at least provide some information to customers when they close a branch. An unexpected branch closure really does leave me with an uneasy feeling.

The funny thing is I only wish I had taken a picture to share it with others.

The following are links to articles relating to Templestowe and the surrounding area.
