Staple Hill’s last bank to close, announces Lloyds

Lloyds has announced the closure of its Staple Hill branch – the last bank in the town.

Lloyds says that following an in-depth review, it has made the “difficult decision” to close the branch in the High Street due to customers using it less often.

Counters at Staple Hill branch are said to be 11% quieter than a year ago and customers are already banking in other ways.

The branch will close on 17th September.

Lloyds says the Downend branch is less than a mile away while the one in Fishponds Road is just over one mile away.

Personal and business banking customers can deposit cash and cheques using a paying-in slip at any Post Office. Customers with a debit card can also make immediate cash deposits, card withdrawals and get balance inquiries there.

The Lloyds cashpoint machine will also close but there are others are close by.
