We have received the following notification from Barclays Bank regarding the Hucclecote Branch:
On 23 June 2017, we will be closing our branch in Hucclecote. Our records show a low and falling level of transactions at the branch with a 8% drop in the last year alone. On average more than 58% of our customers are already using other branches, and this figure is even higher for our business customers.
This closure means our nearest branch will be at Southgate Street, Gloucester. Everyday transactions, typically carried out over branch counters (including paying in a cheque or depositing cash), can also be completed at the Post Office located at Silverdale Parade, Hillview Road, Hucclecote GL3 3LA.
In terms of what the change means in practical terms, customers that currently use the branch will not need to take any action as all account details, sort code, account number, direct debits will remain the same. If a customer is registered for Barclays Mobile Banking, Online Banking and Telephone Banking they are also exactly the same, and customers can carry on using existing cards, PIN and chequebooks as normal.
Letters to customers regarding this matter will be arriving with customers from Friday 17th March 2017.
