The Burford branch of TSB bank on Sheep Street is closing today.

But customers can still do their banking at local post offices, the National Federation of SubPostmasters (NFSP) said.

The nearest are Burford post office at 107 High Street, in Milton-under-Wychwood and in Carterton on Black Bourton Road.

Each of these branches offers services including deposits, free cash withdrawals and balance checks, as well as offering face-to-face access to government services, bill payment, foreign currency, travel insurance and, of course, postal services.

A spokesperson for NFSP said: "This will doubtless be disappointing to TSB’s customers in Burford. However, alternative banking provision is available to local residents at post office branches nearby.

"There are currently 2,000 free-to-use ATMs installed across the UK post office network also."

She added: "Post offices are proving vital to retaining people’s and businesses' access to cash as the banks continue to desert the high street in order to cut costs and increase their profits.

"Every post office plays a vital role within the heart of the local community. Post offices provide a reliable and essential service which has continued at a high standard across the whole of the UK throughout the pandemic."
