Winterbourne to lose its NatWest bank
Published on: 23 Dec 2017
A BRANCH of NatWest bank in Winterbourne is set to disappear from the village’s High Street when it closes with nearly 200 others around the country.
The bank said it proposed to shut the branch on June 6. After then, customers will have to go to the nearest alternative branches in Yate, Filton or Fishponds.
However, NatWest said everyday banking services could be done at local post offices.
The bank said: “Closing a branch is a decision we take very seriously. A broad range of local factors are considered and contribute to our decision-making process.”
It said more people were choosing to do their banking online, with a mobile banking app or over the phone.
NatWest said that meant some branches were being used a lot less than they used to be.
Meanwhile, the bank’s Chipping Sodbury branch is also due to close on May 30.
