Barclays Bank, Blyth

From October the Barclays branch in Blyth will have restricted opening as follows:-

Monday, Tuesday  9:30 to 4:30

Wednesday CLOSED all day

Thursday,  Friday 9:30 to 4:30

Posters in branch encourage use of Internet and 'Phone banking, but that's all well and good for some services.

But how do you pay in cash or cheques. I was in earlier today, and half a dozen businesses were paying into business accounts .  Also there were a couple of "elderly" customers, who with every respect are unlikely to have internet access

Is this reduction in hours an excuse for cutting staff?

Is this reduction in hours a precursor to closing the branch?
