Bank bosses have been urged to clearly set out what services will be available when the Halifax branch in Hatfield closes.

The Welwyn Hatfield MP Grant Shapps is concerned local people will lose out when the branch in (town centre/street) shuts in June 2025 to be replaced by a ‘banking hub’.

He has written to Halifax bosses asking: “What range of facilities that will be offered at the new banking hub? Will it just be cash machines and a banker who is available once a week? Or will it offer other and newer services for customers?”

Mr Shapps added: “How accessible will the new services at this hub be for customers? And how will you help regular users adapt to this new change?”

Mr Shapps said he would help “in any way which will make the transition to a new hub as easy as possible for the people of Hatfield”.
