James Brokenshire has contacted Barclays Bank in order to seek urgent clarification on when the bank will reopen for customers, following water damage. Despite initial delays, the bank is now due to reopen on Wednesday 25 June.
In their response, Barclays apologised for the delay and indicated that work to repair the bank has now commenced.
Commenting on the closure James said:
“Barclays Bank provides an essential local service in Bexley village, not only for local residents but also for the many businesses on the High Street and in the surrounding area. I hope that Barclays will continue to keep local people informed of progress and that the branch will re-open very soon.”
