Banking giant NatWest to close Cumbrian branch

The NatWest is closing one of its Cumbrian branches as customers make more use of new techonology.

The branch, at Shap, will shut on November 26 this year.

The company says the "difficult decision" is the result of a significant fall in the number of transactions at the bank, which is open for just four hours a week and is not connected to its computer system.

NatWest says a mobile branch will operate once a route has been decided and customers can also use the nearby Post Office to withdraw money and check balances.

The firm adds it expects the national move towards online and mobile banking to continue to grow.

"We’ve advised staff and we’re writing to our customers to make them aware of the closure and the different ways they can still bank with us.

"If customers or local businesses are concerned about how this will impact their banking, they can go into the branch where staff will be happy to discuss the alternative ways to bank with us," says a statement.
