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.

St Anthonys Pre-School Playgroup

St Anthonys drive, Fulwood, Preston PR2 3SQ, UK – 07963 700591

My daughter absolutely loves St Anthony's play group and can't wait to start the preschool in September. The staff are amazing, so kind and nurturing yet also encourage the children's self confidence and independence. My daughter loves to go and always has so much to tell me when I collect her. She's made some lovely friends. I highly recommend St Anthony's preschool playgroup, I don't think I could have found a better nursery for my daughter.

Both of my children have absolutely loved attending St Anthony's preschool and play group. They've had so much fun! The staff are kind and nurturing. They work hard to prepare the little ones for their transition to school. I couldn't have asked for more!

The Lancashire Wine School

Holiday Inn Preston, Ring Way, Preston PR1 3AU, UK – 01253 301934

I bought my friend a wine tasting voucher for Christmas and she loved the event. Colin made us feel so welcome and created a welcoming, friendly atmosphere. I've attended a few more events since and each one is different, but each one is outstanding - the best value night out in Preston

The courses run by the Lancashire Wine School are fantastically good fun, for both newcomers to wine and more knowledgeable drinkers. I attended the 10 week world of wine course and found it an excellent way to learn more about the regional variations in wine produced around the world. I have always been a French wine fan and didn’t believe any other kind could compare but I was pleasantly surprised to find many wines from both the New and Old world to be not only comparable but in some instances better! Each night Colin chose a broad selection of the wine produced from a country, all bought from local supermarkets and shops and at reasonable prices. He infected us with his enthusiasm and by the end of each evening all of us were excitedly debating that night’s wines and our thoughts on wine in general. I would thoroughly recommend any of Colin’s courses!

Linx Training

Preston Technology Centre, Marsh Ln, Preston PR1 8UQ, UK – 01772 378979

I went for my Door Supervisors course here at Linx training. I found the entry process smooth and efficient. All the relevant information was sent in advance and in good time. I had clear instructions what to do, where to go and what to bring. The training facilities were excellent and the building was clean and comfortable. The administration staff were professional and good at their jobs, notably Harry who seemed on top of everything. The training itself was second to none. It was delivered absolutely superbly by a guy called Steve Reynolds who was full of character, very knowledgeable, funny and totally on the ball regarding door supervision. He made even the most boring parts of the course extremely engaging. Nobody had any complaints about his teaching methods. He's quite clearly a guy who's been round the block a few times. You'd definitely want him on your team for morale as well as his professional conduct. He made the course what it was. Without him it wouldn't be the same.

I have Just Completed A Door supervisor course with the help Of Linx Security In Preston. Best in the Business. I was given lots of help with the preparation up to the exam, which I was fully prepared for thanks to Stephen. Worth The Money. They also offer First aid Training and handcuff training which I will be going back to do in the near Future. Thanks Hasnat Choudhary
