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!

Mr Schofield completely changed my life in all honesty by giving me a real wake up call to how I looked after my teeth, then he educated me on why I should look after them, I have been going since I was 17, - now 22 years later I am still going even though I moved away from the area! 11 out of ten for me :)

The Dental Health Centre

Flintoff Way, Preston PR1 5AF, UK – 01772 654334

Excellent. I would like to say a big thank you to the oral surgeon and dentist and the staff at my surgery, I only registered on 3rd January due to my wife seeing the oral surgeon. My first appointment was on 9th January 17,but I missed it due to being taken  into hospital on that day. Since then I've only had  four appointments, And on two of those had all my surgery.  5/6 extractions, teeth clean and a filling in such a short time, I never had a Dentist, not properly anyway, I was always too scared to get my teeth sorted, and everything else which also is done  especially a back one which was extracted,and was the result of an unfortunate incident 23 years ago, and was left by myself. Very professional job even though I am on NHS, I still can't believe what has been done for me I feel a lot better too. My wife is at my surgery now, awaiting her first appointment when I go back in August for a check up. Highly recommended and again thank you so much. (now I can smile) ☺ ☺ Mr M. CHATTELL

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Fulwood

Checco's Restaurant

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

Checco's is one of my favorite places to eat in Preston! Reasonably priced (you get what you pay for) and fabulous food and drink. The service is always fantastic too.

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.

Tang Restaurant

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

Very good Chinese. 2 menus available, one for 'English' style Chinese food, the other for more 'authentic' food. This restaurant is frequented by the local Chinese community, which says it all.

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!

Shahzaad Tandoori Restaurant

64 Friargate, Preston PR1 2AT, UK – 01772 822993

Been eating out here for 20 years, best and friendliest place in town.

Great place. Good, reasonably priced food and the owner is always friendly and helpful.

Nursery and Preschools

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.

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.
