The NatWest Branch in Crowborough will close at the end of May as part of sweeping changes announced by RBS this morning.
A total of 62 RBS and 197 NatWest branches will close by the mid-2018 as more customers bank online. This represents one in four of its outlets.
RBS say 1,000 roles will be affected, but the bank hopes to limit the number of redundancies to 680 by redeploying staff.
Twenty other branches in Sussex will close including Heathfield, Wadhurst and Hailsham.
After the closure of the branch in Crowborough, the nearest alternative NatWests for customers to use will be in Tunbridge Wells and Uckfield. Customers will still be able to withdraw money at cash machines outside Lloyds and Santander in Crowborough, and they will be able to deposit cheques and cash at the Post Office using their debit card. The Crowborough branch of HSBC on Beacon Road closed in February.
