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.

I was at the hospital as a day surgery patient for an operation on my foot. What an amazing hospital! Bright, welcoming, the staff smiling and informative. If one can say to enjoy going to hospital for surgery, then I enjoyed it. Thank you very much to all the staff there that I met - ward staff, theater staff, you were all lovely.

Fantastic - True professionals at a rural location.

Simla Tandoori

12 West St, Blandford Forum DT11 7AJ, UK – 01258 452096

Food was exceptional and waiters were very polite, only downside would be how long it toke we arrived at 18:30 didn't get our mains until 19:45 and then didn't leave the establishment till 22:00 so prepare to spend you whole evening there as this was just for 2 of us although it was a Friday night!

Maharaja

Really good restaurant great food and service, not too fancy but honest Indian cuisine like it used to be.

Food Delicious, we ordered over the phone and collected in store, the man advised it was slightly more expensive to pay on card when we i checked my bank statement a few days later instead of the extra £1ish that you normaly expect to pay, he had charged me and extra £6 to pay on card a complete rip of and very rude!

Lovely grounds and an interesting school. Seek out the old school photos in the corridors. They don't wear school uniforms so the fashion and haircuts are a wonderful historic document (and hilarious).

It is a great sports camp.

Independent Driving

11 Albert St, Blandford Forum DT11 7HY, UK – 01258 452419

I choose Bournemouth independent driving because I had researched and seen all the good reviews. I was very lucky to get Martin as a driving instructor. He built my driving confidence which aloud me to pass my test first time. Thankyou Martin and Bournemouth independent driving school. I highly recommend! 🙂

I have never really been confident in my driving, but having Chrissy as an instructor was really helpful in improving my confidence. Chrissy paced the lessons based on what I wanted to do, so gave me the freedom to develop at my own pace. Before my test I was made fully aware of all the potential safety questions and how to answer them fully, preparing me for driving beyond passing the test. I have recommended Chrissy to my friends prior to my test and I'd do the same after.

Knighton House School and The Orchard Pre-prep

Durweston, Blandford Forum DT11 0PY, UK – 01258 452065

Knighton House is a every parents idea of the perfect country girls prep school (ages 7 to 13, plus nursery from 3 to 7). Excellent academic results achieved in a nurturing environment. Plenty to occupy day, flexi and boarders alike. A focus on the child with small class sizes (average 8 to 10); wonderful comfy dorms, ponies, rabbits, pigmy goats all in 30 acres of beautiful Dorset countryside. I speak from experience as I have 3 children at the school, who moved from a London day-school environment and have flourished at Knighton.
