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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

After avoiding dental treatment for almost 40 years I arrived at the Shefford practice quite a nervous patient as you can imagine. On a recommendation I plucked up the courage to make an appointment and have just finished a coarse of painless treatment. ALL of the staff here are most kind and efficient. A special thanks to Doctor Sam whose gentleness and professionalism was second to none.

Been using this dentist for over 10 year's. All the staff are very friendly and professional. I am quite scared and fussy when it comes to dentists. Sam is brilliant he puts me at ease and only does what is nessacary. Highly recommend. .

Very helpful, polite staff and easier to get an appointment than any other surgery around here!

I've been going to Arlesey medical centre since it opened. The best surgery I've ever been to. I can always get an appointment when I need one. They're thoughtful and thorough and always treat me as an individual not a number. I can't praise them highly enough - from the doctors to the nurses to the reception staff. The NHS at its best.

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.

i really like this school, as it taught me how to do very realistic role playing on an online game, and i now have graduated with 2 a* and a d grade, for my english, just because i was bullied by the english teacher

This school is great. There's so many smokers so you know the atmosphere is going to be clean and fresh. Time tables are constantly changed which is amazingly smart because it keeps us on our feet. The school is so professional that sometimes teachers don't turn up to lessons.
