You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Holly Dental Practice

11 Moor Park Ave, Preston PR1 6AS, UK – 01772 561748

I had been wanting to improve my smile for years and finally, after visiting several clinics, I decided on Holly Dental as it instantly offered a lovely atmosphere. I have not been disappointed with my choice. I have been having various treatments for over 6 months and I cannot think of a negative thing to say. Albert and Nadine have been fantastic. I hated my smile with the old, wobbly crowns, receding gums and generally ugly teeth. I have whitened my teeth, had my old crowns replaced and had new veneers. All done with skill and precision. Albert always took the time to fully explain each stage of the treatment. With advice and regular visits to Louise the hygienist my gums are much improved. All in all a really positive experience. I now have my smile back and am thrilled with the results. Thanks you so much Albert and Nadine. Thanks you to Charlotte and all the other staff who have been so welcoming and friendly.

When I finally convinced my self that it was time that I visited a dentist I am very pleased that I chose Holly Dental practice. From the initial consultation with the dentist Albert Muntane to the completion of my treatment Albert proved to be a dentist of the highest competence with a very caring attitude who explained all the procedures in detail with assurances that the treatment would be pain free. Nadine, the dental nurse, together with the dental hygienist were extremely efficient in their duties. I would not hesitate in recommending the Holly Dental Practice.

Fishergate Hill Surgery

50 Fishergate Hill, Preston PR1 8DN, UK – 01772 254484

Doctors here are very good and understand a wide range of problems (including mental illnesses) although, receptionist are rude and think they know when you do and don't need to see a doctor, called up about my mental health a few times and they were extremely rude to me saying I didn't need to see a doctor. From working in customer services, I know how you're supposed to speak to clients and patients, this is not the way.

like this surgery, docs are good, took me a bit to fined a doc who understands more about metal illness than others. very well knowledgeable about all different services est.. doc makes me feel like I am not wasting there time, that its just as important as a physical illness.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Fulwood

Tang Restaurant

241 Fylde Rd, Preston PR2 2NH, UK – 01772 729545

Preston has a pretty large Chinese student population, and you could do far worse for recommendations than watching where they choose to eat. And from what I can see, they eat at Tang. I spent Chinese New Year here. The atmosphere was lively, the staff were friendly, and the food was the best Chinese I've had in a long time - quite possibly since Hong Kong. And you can order to take away, to boot. There are Karaoke rooms upstairs too. They're pretty good as Karaoke goes, but it's really not my thing. Perhaps I just wasn't drunk enough!

Great food in an unexpected location. Staff were great and the food was very nice. Will happily go there again.

Tinos Restaurant

21 Hill St, Preston PR1 2BB, UK – 01772 253888

Lovely welcome. Excellent service. Food delicious. Fillet steak recommended. Atmosphere convivial. Great local restaurant

Good value lunch menu. Very good food, lovely service.

Checco's Restaurant

166 Garstang Rd, Fulwood, Preston PR2 8NB, UK – 01772 719055

The food is good, whether pizza or pasta and the cakes are delicious. They don't mind if you sit there with a cup of coffee, or order a three course meal. The staff are friendly and the place is clean. They don't harass customers with a large pepper-pot. The food is all Italian and is one of the best out of town. Including drinks, it is good value for money. There is also a parking place at the back of the restaurant, which is a converted Victorian house.

Food was lovely. will recommend friends

Nursery and Preschools

First Steps Nursery

Fulwood Lodge, Longsands Ln, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9PS, UK – 01772 792644

What a lovely nursery First Steps is. The staff are very caring and attentive and our cheekly little boy had great fun and was really well looked after for the 2 years he attended. He enjoyed his time there and really came out of his shell with new people. He thinks the world of First Steps.

Poppy And Jack's Nursery

22 Black Bull La, Fulwood, Preston PR2 3PX, UK – 01772 719689

I can not rate this nursery highly enough. We have had pleasant enough experience in nurseries with my eldest and for a short time with my second(interspersed with a few bad experiences too, hence the change), absolutely nothing compares to Hillcrest. My son has always been a happy, confident child but even he has come along in leaps and bounds since starting here, he is encouraged to express himself, to do as he pleases and learn new things - always under very competent and loving supervision. It amazes me how well they know each child and how individually they treat them, children always come first here! The outdoor areas cater for every age group and they are *always* out there, rain or shine. My son comes home with so many stories and has truly loved every minute here. I am so sad that we have to leave for him to join school but I am so thankful that we found this place, my worries considerably lessened as soon as he started here, a huge must for all parents! I could gush for hours but honestly just go and look, observe them for five minutes and see how every staff member is completely concentrating on the children and thoroughly enjoying their job.

I can't say enough good things about this wonderful nursery and its staff. Absolutely fantastic, in every way, shape and form. My son loves it and he has learnt so much. He has grown in confidence, self expression, communication and learnt so much through having fun. A***** He loves the outside area and the garden room and log cabin room. Staff are friendly, brilliant with the children and all round shinning examples of what a nursery should be like and run.

Daisy Chain Day Care Nursery

382 Tag La, Preston PR2 7AA, UK – 01772 722764
