Balloons, live music and stilt walkers paraded along the High Road to celebrate Metro Bank opening doors to the public.

Iain Kirkpatrick, managing director of retail banking, said: “The reception we’ve received from the Ilford community over the past few days has been incredible.

“We can’t wait to get to know even more people and become a true community hub.”

Metro Bank is open seven days a week, early until late, and provides instant account opening, along with on-the-spot card printing for lost or stolen credit or debit cards.

All stores offer safe deposit boxes for customers’ valuables and coin counting for customers and non-customers alike, free of charge.

“It was great meeting so many residents and businesses and introducing them to what superior service and convenience looks like,” he added.
