Changes to branch opening times during this time

Coronavirus changes to branch opening times

The Government has been clear that the single most important action we can all take in fighting Coronavirus is to stay at home in order to protect the NHS and save lives. We therefore urge our members only to visit our branches where absolutely necessary.  

Following the opening up of non-essential retail businesses on 12 April 2021, we have extended our branch opening times.  These will be reviewed when further changes are made by Government. See individual branch opening times and contact details in our branch finder.


For all branches from Wednesday 14 April 2021: 

  • Monday: 9am – 3pm

  • Tuesday: 9am – 3pm

  • Wednesday: 9.30am – 3pm

  • Thursday: 9am – 3pm

  • Friday: 9am – 3pm

  • Saturday: 9am – 12 noon  

  • Sunday: CLOSED

Local decisions may need to be made to manage Coronavirus infections / isolations, so please continue to check your local branch opening times before visiting, using our branch finder.


You can pay cash or cheques in at your local branch, but we ask you only do this if your transaction is essential. 

Essential and non-essential transactions

We are happy to help in branch with the following:  
•    Cash/cheque withdrawals 
•    Cheque deposits 
•    Electronic transfers 
•    Registering a death  
We ask you not to visit a branch for the following: 
•    Regular low value withdrawals and deposits for notes, coins and cheques 
•    Passbook updates with no transactions 
•    Debit card deposits 

If you would like to know whether an automated credit has been received, would like to open a new savings account or transfer your savings to another savings product, please phone your local branch rather than visiting.

Remember, that you can make withdrawals from your account through our online myaccounts service to a nominated current account. It is easy to register if you have not done so already.


To comply with social distancing regulations, we have reduced the number of tills open and are limiting the number of members in the branch at one time. We kindly request only one person from your party enters the branch and transacts with us on each occasion. 

Staying Covid-19 secure in 2020
