Bank open New Year’s Day

Barclays Bank will take the historic step of opening on New Year’s Day.

Barclays in Terminus Road Eastbourne will open its doors from 10am to 2pm – the first time any branch of Barclays in England and Wales has opened on New Year’s Day since it became an official Bank Holiday in 1974. The move is aimed at meeting customer growing demand.

Eastbourne Peter Clark said, “We are delighted to offer our customers the opportunity to see us at the branch outside the traditional banking times.”
