We have upsetting news that there are plans to close the branch of Barclays Bank at 51 Prestwick Road in South Oxhey on the 23rd January 2015.
This is a popular branch, and the only bank in the South Oxhey area, therefore we are keen to understand Barclays reasons for deciding it should close. It would be approximately a 2 mile journey for residents wishing to use the next nearest branch, which of course is not easy for those who are vulnerable or elderly.
We recognise that banks are reducing their numbers of high street branches as more and more people move to online banking, however it is the choice of this specific branch that we are concerned about, it's always busy every time one of our team go in and singly serves an entire area.
