Last remaining bank set to close in village
Lloyds Bank has announced the locations of 100 branches that it plans to close between July and October and Heckington is amongst them.
The closure will see the village without a traditional high street bank, the first time in decades and leaves residents with little choice but to visit neighbouring towns for their closest branch.
Whilst the Post Office can offer limited banking facilities, the closure is a blow for the village as it sets to expand its population with new houses being built in the near future.
Lloyds said the closures were the result of fewer branch transactions.
A spokesperson from Lloyds said "Our branches will continue to play a vital role in our multi-channel approach to meeting the full range of customer needs, and we expect to continue to have the biggest branch network in the UK."
