Lloyds in Wotton-under-Edge to shut

Lloyds in Long Street, Wotton-under-Edge, is to shut in August, it was recently revealed. 

Stroud District Councillor leader Catherine Braun, who represents Wotton at SDC, said she was disappointed at the news. 

“Such disappointing news today that the branch in Wotton will be closing in August this year,” wrote the councillor on Twitter.  

“I’m hoping to meet with bank representatives to discuss options to provide local residents, businesses and communities with continued access to banking facilities.”

Lloyds have explained the decision. 

“Like many other high street businesses, we’ve seen people using our branches less frequently in recent years as more customers choose to do most of their everyday banking online.

“We’re responding to the way our customers use our branches. We’ll continue to invest in our branch network, but we have to make sure our branches are where customers need and use them most.

“As a result, we’ve made the difficult decision to close this branch because customers are using it less often. In addition the majority of customers are also using alternative ways to bank.
