The new flex site will be situated in the former Tourist Information Office at Hunstanton Town Hall.
Customers of Barclays in Hunstanton will be aware that the branch is set to close on Wednesday 12th April.
James Lloyd, who some may remember worked at the Hunstanton branch a few years ago, will be managing the new facility at the Town Hall. James said: "It's great to be back in Hunstanton and I'm looking forward to helping customers at the new site.
"Whilst it will be a cashless site, I'm there to help customers review their accounts, discuss savings, make smaller bank transfers and to arrange appointments - not forgetting that I can also help with getting people online and able to use the banking app!
"I've been working in a similar facility recently and I'd like to reassure customers that they will still be able to discuss finances face to face."
The opening times will be Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 9.30am-12.30pm and 1pm-3.30pm. It's planned to open the Flex site in early April, before the branch closure, to enable a smooth handover.
For customers wishing to deposit cash or cheques, Barclays are directing people to the Post Office and James confirmed that there will be a supply of the envelopes that customers will need for Post Office transactions at the Flex site.
The cashpoint outside the bank will also be removed when the branch closes and customers are advised to use other cash machines in the town. It is worth noting that whilst a Barclays machine allows customers to print off a mini statement this is not the case at other cash machines (customers can see a balance only) and the new flex site will have no printing facilities. If customers can't get online or use the app, a statement can be ordered at the flex hub and it will be delivered by Royal Mail.
Barclays have confirmed that staff are being relocated to other branches and none will be losing their jobs as a result of the closure of the branch.
