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!

Dr. H. Kaviani

407 Blackpool Rd, Preston PR2 2DU, UK – 01772 726932

I loved the experience. A very friendly and professional environment. Everybody had a smile and a kind word, and the professional quality was excellent! Dr. Kaviani is an excellent dentist who is kind and patient. I went in for some serious dental work and she took her time and explained every part of the process to me, which I greatly appreciated. I couldn’t recommend her enough. She is just the best. Honest, good and has a great passion for what she does.

Gentle caring dentist who puts the patients first, what a great place! What an incredible dental practice, the dentists as well as the staff are very friendly and professional. Five stars. I strongly recommend Dr Kaviani as the most considerate and passionate Dentist in Lancashire; this is a great opportunity to thank all the member of staff at Lane ends dental practice for giving me the greatest smile ever and for always making me feel welcome there.

Geoffrey Street Surgery

The Health Centre, Geoffrey St, Preston PR1 5NE, UK – 01772 401760

This surgery is adequate and has two surgeries in the same building: Geoffrey Street Surgery and New Hall Lane Practice but Geoffrey Street Surgery only has one GP working there which makes appointments hard to get and the sit and wait service on Mondays can keep you waiting for over an hour. The staff are really friendly though.

Royal Preston Hospital

Sharoe Green Lane North, Fulwood, Preston PR2 9HT, UK – 01772 716565

I have just been discharged following a second skin graft on my leg and I cannot express the gratitude to the management and staff on ward 4 (plastics) once again they have looked after me for the last 6 days making sure I was given the best care to allow my leg to heal and the skin graft to settle and give it a chance to heal properly, My consultant could not have made me more positive about the outcome of this operation and the one to one support him and his team have given me have been second to none. Thankyou to everyone involved in my care and I really hope that I will be able to come and thank you very soon and not have to come back as a patient again :)

My mother admitted after serious fall and fractures, as on holiday away from London. Both medical and nursing care was superb. Such attention to detail and compassion in such difficult circumstances. We never once had to ask twice for support.

Fulwood Hall Hospital

West Cornwall Pasty Company Preston

Platform 3, Preston station, Fishergate, Preston PR1 8AP, UK – 01772 201011

Their pasty deal of the month was an option with bacon. Being a Muslim, I couldn't avail of it. The lady at the counter said they would have new options the next month. Oh, well. They do make the pasty fresh. I had their Thai green curry vegetable pasty today and it was palatable. Their coffees are great. You can swipe their loyalty card, which gets you 10% points.

Don't know why this rates so badly. Not had a bad one one yet. Friendly staff. It's actually not in Cornwall. Maybe that's it? 😉

Premier Inn Preston Central

Fox Street, Preston PR1 2AB, UK – 0871 527 8908

typical run of the mill premiere Inn. rooms are nice and beds are comfy, usual facilities I. e. tea and coffee in room. staff are a bit exuberant but friendly, place is close to the town centre as well

Clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. Specially evening Porter/Reception (Ismail). Only downside was parking. OK if it isn't raining. But euro car park nearby is unmanned. Card facility doesn't work. No change, so keep lots of coins to hand. Easy 5 Stars if parking was sorted.

Nursery and Preschools

Poppy And Jack's Nursery - Fulwood

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.

I've never been to this school but my year 6 teacher has become headmaster. He is an inspiring, respectful and sporty teacher that I would have no problem sending my children to come here. I was hard work in primary but mr hough always had faith in me that I would do well. I'm now in year 7,on the football team, on track and I've never had a detention. With mr hough as head he will make sure any child will have the right education and support they need. Thanks for reading.
