Stevenage High Street’s Lloyds Bank branch is set to close, it has been confirmed.

The branch is one of 41 across the UK that Lloyds has earmarked for closure, and will mean there will be no longer be any banks in Stevenage Old Town.

In a branch review statement, Lloyds said: “Following a careful review, the High Street Stevenage branch will close on July 12, 2018.

“We have made the difficult decision to close this branch due to customers using it less often.

“In addition, the majority of customers are also using alternative ways to bank and we have another branch close by.

“Branches remain vital in meeting customers’ needs but we must continually review our network to make sure we have branches in locations where customers need and use them the most.”

The closure of the High Street branch – which is currently open two days a week – is just one of a number in North Herts over the past few years.
