the banking crisis last year and the resulting closure of hundreds
of branches across the UK.
Burnham-based customers of the Halifax have this week been sent
letters explaining the situation and customers are being told
their accounts are not affected.
Emma Partridge told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We are vacating
the High Street Halifax branch in Burnham in early November. We
are writing to customers who use this branch to inform them of
their nearest Halifax branch."
"Alternatively, customers can transact at their local Post
Office on Victoria Street. We understand that location is important.
If it would be more convenient for customers to manage their accounts
at a branch in Burnham, we are more than happy to support them
in moving their accounts to the local Lloyds TSB which is also
on the High Street."
