Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are concerned about Coronavirus and the impact this may have on your finances, we are here to support you. We are updating our website regularly with information you may need, including any updates on our branch opening times.

Check updates

This webpage provides our Members key service updates caused by COVID-19 disruption and was last updated on November 5th. 


Following the government announcement to move into a second lockdown please note that we will continue to be open, as we are a designated "essential business".

In the interests of colleague safety, we are operating branch "bubbles" which may mean we occasionally need to close at short notice, for example at lunch time. This webpage will be continually updated with any changes in opening hours and we recommend you review it prior to making any visit. We apologise if for any reasons we need to close at short notice.

Please note the wearing of face masks/coverings by customers in all our branches is mandatory. However, you may be requested to remove your face covering when entering the branch or carrying out transactions in the interest of security and identification purposes and to avoid financial crime.
