REFURBISHMENT work at the Barclays bank in Victoria Square will mean that the branch’s counter services will be unavailable for three weeks.

No cash will be on site as the counter is replaced and customers wishing to use counter services will have to visit other Barclays branches in St Helen’s Road, Daubhill or Market Street, Farnworth.

The branch will remain open to those wanting to meet with personal banking staff during the refurbishment period but will close entirely on March 24 before re-opening with the new counter installed and a full range of services on March 25.
