Lloyds Banking Group have confirmed their Hawarden branch on the Highway will close in July.

The company announced on Thursday 625 jobs will be axed in a fresh round of redundanices which will see 21 branches close.
The cuts are part of 9,000 job losses announced by the bank in 2014, in a restructure that will see a 10 per cent reduction in overall headcount, losses also include IT jobs which are being ‘offshored’ and call centre jobs farmed out to India.

A statement from Lloyds said:

‘As part of our Group Strategic Review, we also announced 200 branch closures over the three year period. Today we can confirm that we will be closing 21 branches during July 2016 as part of this strategy.
‘Branches will continue to play an important role in our multi-channel approach to meeting customer needs and we expect to continue to have the biggest branch network in the UK.
‘Lloyds Banking Group is committed to working through these changes with employees in a careful and sensitive way. All affected employees have been briefed by their line manager today.
‘The Group’s policy is always to use natural turnover and to redeploy people wherever possible to retain their expertise and knowledge within the Group.
‘Where it is necessary for employees to leave the company, it will look to achieve this by offering voluntary redundancy. Compulsory redundancies will always be a last resort.’
As well as Hawarden other branches set to close in July are: Kingsley Park, Heslington, Abbeydale Road, Chipping Sodbury, Abbots Langley, Studley, Ashton Preston, Bebington, Southborough, Cross Hands, East Molesey, Bredbury, Evington Road, Harlescott, New Ferry, Pembroke, Selly Oak, Penryn, Wylde Green and Penwortham Preston.
Lloyds will still have a prescence locally, their branch in Buckley, which will be the last remaining bank once Barclays closes in May, will not be affected.
