Andy Wright, network regional director for Barclays, said: “In response to customers’ evolving needs, customers now have more choice about when they want to visit the branch. We are delighted to offer our customers the opportunity to see us at the branch outside the traditional banking times.”

Mr Wright added: “The New Year opening hours makes great sense for our customers as high streets up and down the country will be busy with shoppers looking to grab a bargain in the New Year sales.
“Bank Holidays can often be a time when customers have a little more time to reflect on their finances and perhaps a good time to implement some positive financial resolutions. Whatever the reason we will be happy for our customers to take advantage of the new opening hours. ”
