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.

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

If you would like to know whether an automated credit has been received, please phone your local branch rather than visiting.


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.
