A BANK in Nailsea is closing in June as part of the company’s restructuring process.
The Co-operative Bank in Crown Glass Place will be shutting its doors for the last time on June 15.
Paul Denton, head of branch network at The Co-operative Bank, said: “This change is part of our business plan to turn the bank around by restructuring and modernising the bank into a simpler, more efficient business.
“The decision to close our branch in Nailsea has not been taken lightly but is necessary as part of the changes we are seeking to build a sustainable business for the future.
“The nearest alternative branch is Portishead which is within five miles of Nailsea. There is also a Post Office branch within a mile where customers can undertake most day-to-day banking transactions.

The bank is also investing more in its online services.
