A WEYMOUTH bank will be closed for the next three weeks as refurbishment works take place.

HSBC on St Mary Street in Weymouth has closed temporarily while it undergoes a refresh, which includes internal building work.

It closed on Friday, April 12 and is expected to re-open on Tuesday, May 7.

Rachel Hill, HSBC UK’s Local Director, said: “We continue to invest in our branch network to make our customers’ experience banking with us a good one.

"We are pleased that our Weymouth branch is getting a refresh, with some painting, new signage and the installation of new state-of-the-art cash machines, which we are excited about."

The nearest HSBC banks to the Weymouth branch are in Poole or Yeovil.

However, the bank has issued advice on how customers can receive support and will be hosting community pop up events on Mondays and Thursdays outside The Range.

Rachel Hill added: “We have been talking to customers about the temporary closure for the last month, and while we are having the work done people can continue to use their nearest Post Office for day to day transactions, plus mobile and online banking is available 24/7 in addition to being able to call our contact centre.

"We will also be hosting community pop up events at The Range, Weymouth, where we will be on hand to support customers.

"Will be there Mondays & Thursdays, from Monday, April 15 until Thursday, May 2 (9.30 am to 4pm).

"Customers can also continue to use any of our branches with Poole or Yeovil being the closest branches.”
