A HEREFORDSHIRE town will soon be without a bank as its last remaining one announces it will be closing.

Lloyds, in Bromyard, will close its Broad Street bank on October 24.

Nationwide pulled out from the market town in 2010, HSBC followed suit in 2013, and Natwest later did the same.

The nearest alternative banks are in Hereford, 15 miles away, or another market town such as Leominster, 12.3 miles away.

A spokesperson from Lloyds Bank said: "Visits to our Bromyard branch have fallen over recent years, as many customers now choose to bank in different ways.

"When the branch closes in October, customers can continue to bank with us at the Post Office in Church Street and can access cash at a number of free ATMs nearby."

The nearby Post Office, which is a couple of minutes' walk away in Church Street, offers personal and business customers everyday banking services, access to cash, paying in of cheques, and more, said the spokesperson.

The nearest free-to-use ATM is 0.07 miles away, and there are three free-to-use ATMs within one mile of the closing branch.

Customers can use any Lloyds Bank branch for their banking, alongside other options such as the Post Office, online, mobile and telephone banking.

"We are contacting customers to let them know about the alternate local banking services available," said the spokesperson.
