A BARCLAYS bank will close in Great Baddow.

Their store based in The Vineyards will shut on Friday, June 20.

Customers of the branch have received a letter telling them about the forthcoming closure - along with details about using other Barclays instead.

George Tully, 45, has banked there for years and is not happy. He said: “It is convient for me, and always has been. The closest alternative is just not convenient.”

Barclays bosses said the decision was “not taken lightly”.

A spokeswoman said: “Barclays is constantly reviewing the way we work to ensure we can deliver a service that is shaped around the way customers are choosing to carry out their banking.

“Customers will not need to take any action as all account details, sort code, account number, direct debits will remain the same.

“Our colleagues at Barclays Great Baddow branch have been consulted about the change and will be given the opportunity to work at an alternative branch.”
