Lloyds said it had made "the difficult decision" to close the the branch because customers were using it less often, and the majority of customers were using alternative ways to bank.

Lloyds assessed banking trends in the four years prior to Covid-19 as well as the year to March 2021, which showed that 253 customers used the branch on a regular monthly basis.

It said that 55 per cent of personal customers using Tadley had also used other Lloyds Bank branches, 81 per cent had also used other Lloyds Bank branches, internet banking or PhoneBank, and 29 per cent had also used the Post Office.

The nearest Lloyds branches will be in Thatcham's Kingsland Centre, or Basingstoke's Festival Place.

The closest Barclays branches are in Market Place, Basingstoke, or in Newbury's Parkway Shopping centre.

Customers can also use their local Post Office for banking transactions.

Lloyds Banking Group retail director Vim Maru, said: “We’ve seen our digital banking customers grow by over four million in five years, to almost 18 million, of which 13.6 million also choose to be active app users.

“This means that, like many businesses on the high street, we must change for a future where branches will be used in a different way, and visited less often."
