A KEIGHLEY bank is closing temporarily for a refurbishment.

The HSBC branch in North Street will shut tomorrow (March 28) and is due to reopen on April 22.

Lisa J Moore, HSBC UK local director, says: "We continue to invest in our branch network to make our customers’ experience banking with us a good one.

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

"We've been talking to customers about the temporary closure for some time, and whilst we're 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."

'Community pop-up events' are also being held, at Keighley Library, in North Street, where bank staff will be on hand to offer help and support to customers. The sessions take place next Thursday (April 4) and on Monday, April 8, between 9.30am and 3.30pm.

Ms Moore adds: "Customers can also continue to use any of our branches, with Shipley being the closest for Keighley customers."
