A Lowestoft bank will be closing for five weeks as part of a major branch refurbishment.

Work will start at Barclays Bank in London Road North on Friday, March 3, when half the banking hall will be closed.

The branch will then be fully closed from Friday, April 7, reopening again on May 15.

Kathryn Kitson, community banking director for Norfolk and Suffolk said: 'To provide a modern banking environment for both our customers and colleagues, we are investing heavily in our Lowestoft branch by totally refurbishing both the banking hall and first floor.

'During the weeks when the branch is fully closed, customers can use our local branches at Beccles and Great Yarmouth. Both personal and business customers can also use the local Post Offices in Lowestoft for transactions typically carried out over branch counters (to withdraw cash, paying in cheques or depositing cash), along with our range of digital channels.
