The Lowestoft branch of a popular bank is set to close temporarily.

Santander's Lowestoft branch in the town centre – based at 81 London Road North – will shut temporarily from Friday, October 20 until November 22 while a complete refurbishment is carried out.

During the temporary closure, Santander account holders can use the Post Office for cash and cheque deposits, withdrawals and to check their account balance. The 14 members of staff from the Lowestoft branch will be relocated to the Great Yarmouth and Norwich branches while the refurbishment is carried out.

Jacqueline Ritchie, branch manager at Lowestoft, said: 'We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused to our customers by the temporary closure of our branch and thank them for their patience during this time. However, we are delighted to be able to demonstrate our commitment to the local community by making such a big investment into this refurbishment. We look forward to welcoming customers back to a brand new modern branch, which will offer state of the art digital facilities and an innovative design, once the work is completed in November.'
