HSBC branch to close

Closed door at HSBC - soon to be closed for good

The High Street branch of HSBC bank is to close on January 13, writes Seana Lanigan. The company said that in the past five years footfall had fallen by a third. The nearest HSBC branch will be in Hastings though the bank claims it has set up a partnership with the Post Office on Station Approach so that customers can still carry out day-to-day banking. The company did not respond to requests for information about what that partnership would entail.



  1. As a customer of the local branch I am disappointed at the lack of local consultation – the only way to stop this national trend is to transfer your banking to another bank which does have a local branch, that way at least that banks footfall will increase and we might well strengthen the case for that bank to retain a high street presence !
