Bexhill’s branch of Halifax will be closing later this year.

The move is part of the Lloyds Banking Group’s plans to close scores of branches across the country.

Today (Wednesday, April 5), the group announced the locations of 100 branches that it plans to close between July and October.

Some 54 Lloyds branches will be affected, alongside 24 Bank of Scotland and 22 Halifax branches, one of which is the Bexhill branch.

A Halifax spokesman said: “The Halifax, Bexhill-on-Sea branch will close on July 19, due to the changing ways customers choose to bank with, which has resulted in customers using it less often.

“The majority of customers also now regularly use alternative branches or use other ways to bank such as online and telephone banking to complete their banking needs.

“We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and have informed customers of the closest alternative branch, which is Hastings.”
