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!

Local Chambers of Commerce for B65 8BS. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Dudley Town Hall

St James's Rd, Dudley DY1 1HP, UK – 01384 815577

Went last night to see Katherine Ryan who was, as always, superb. The venue is a little old fashioned but easily accessible with nearby parking £1.10 from 7pm to 7am. Seating was okay with a good view of the stage from the balcony and staff very friendly. Acoustics were fine for oration but probably less so for music. Bar ran out of bottled water and I suspect that this was because it became almost unbearably hot in there. Now I know this October weather is unseasonably warm but I got that hot my glasses were sliding down my face! This didn't stop us from having a great night though and if you ever get the chance to see MS Ryan just go she's fantastic.

A good dentist I have used this dentist for years -I don't go too often but when I do I have never had any problems with anything they have ever done with my teeth .A fantastic friendly dental practice

Halesowen Dental

36 Haden Hill Rd, Halesowen B63 3NQ, UK – 0121 550 6958

"5 out of 5" "Professional service throughout. This practice has a very friendly team and I felt that my teeth concerns were addressed right from the start. I especially liked the fact that a discussion was carried out throughout the consultation via the use of real time photographs taken of my teeth to help me make an informed decision regarding my options. Overall it was a very good experience and I would definitely recommend this practice. Many thanks for your high quality treatment and care".

From the initial consultation to my ongoing appointments the service and level of care has been faultless. The information I received about my treatment, and what was going to happen next was always very thorough, and I was left with no doubts as to what to expect. Every person at the practice is friendly, professional and make you feel incredibly at ease. The practice itself is spotlessly clean and well maintained. I couldn't recommend Halesowen Dental enough, the best dentist I have been to.

Rowley Healthcare

Hawes Ln, Rowley Regis B65 9AF, UK – 0121 559 5159

I have attended this surgery for 19 years. Sonia the manager is NOT racist... I have found her to be very supportive and understanding... She went to bat for me with one of the local hospitals and has always been willing to listen. Leanne her deputy is one of the most caring, gentle and sincere people I know. Deb the nurse is an old fashioned nurse with a caring heart and good skills. She always calls back and is very kind. The reception staff are all welcoming and go out of the way to help. I have not had a problem with them ever. My husband and I have chronic health issues and I am disabled... although I miss Sarah, and get frustrated by their use of locum doctors it's not their fault there are not enough GPs. That's why they call you... to try to stretch the appointments they have. You want more appointments? Elect someone who won't cripple the health service but don't blame these people. The surgery is old but clean and accessible. It is not dilapidated. Parking is a problem but it's on a good bus route. When my husband and I needed help, the people here did all they could for us. 4 stars because I think they should hire an ANP to manage care in the absence of a full time GP. I'm a nurse and trained District Nurse. This surgery does not deserve the bad reviews it has here. People have used this to make complaints: they should bring those to the surgery instead of defaming it.

I have just spoken to a lovely lady who is a Medical Receptionist and her name is Karen Brain. What a professional and a breath of fresh air. In one phone call she has sorted myself and my partner, rearranged dates and given excellent advice also. It was a joy to speak to her which is why I feel compelled to give this feedback. I hope your employers understand what an asset you are to the practice and how informative and helpful you are. What a genuine person that helps people because that is what she does.

Istanbul Restaurant

Second visit and again very happy with both the service and meals. Nothing too much trouble for the staff. Booked in advance for Sunday evening but needn't have bothered plenty of tables free, though that was probably due to the cold weather. I had the moussaka which was both filling and extremely tasty.

Oh lord this place is just divine!!! Traditional dishes and the service second to none. More than happy to explain the dishes, ingredients and whether very spicy or mild. Very friendly and helpful. Traditional music in.the background...was lovely. Will def be visiting again.

We are so happy to have discovered this school! Since the new headteacher has taken charge we have noticed great and exciting changes at the school. Our daughter really enjoys attending and shows good improvement in all areas. Learning is tailored to her individual needs and as the teacher pupil ratio is low she gets a good amount of attention and time. The teachers are very attentive and caring towards the children and offer good communication in relaying childrens progress. Highly recommend!

As a qualified teacher who has worked in both state schools and islamic schools I can not recommend this school enough.My daughter has attended since reception and has really flourished in both academics and spiritually. The school has instilled excellent morals and knowledge of the Deen. The teachers work hard to ensure each child is well cared for and learning at a good pace. Thanks to the smaller size classes, each child is given extra attention, time and care. The building and surrounding environment is beautiful. There is a large outdoor environment for children to play in. The head teacher is adopting a new and exciting forest school ethos, which the children love. Children who attend the school are well mannered, polite and intelligent.
