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 CA11. 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!

Best dental surgery I've been to This is one of the best dental surgeries I've been to. They're friendly and professional from when you walk in to the dentist and hygienists. All staff were fantastic and would highly recommend to anyone!

Great dental work (implant) was carried out by the very friendly and professional team. I was able to compare the experience and results with another surgery when I had my other dental implant completed a little while back. Very happy with the process, the result and the advice given! It could have not been any better - I was in very good hands :-) Thanks to Satya and his team - very professional, high tech (even moreso now), super friendly, informative, communicative, child-friendly, and overall great!

Has helped in the recovery of my shoulder. Magic hands

Adam is an Osteopath who is not only effective in his treatment but also a man full of integrity. When I went to see him for my third in a series of treatments today he said he could see I was doing better and he didn't need to do anything. There was no charge and I was both surprised and thankful. If I have back problems in future I will not hesitate, and have no problems in recommending him to others.

Local hospitals - community hospitals and hospitals with A&E departments for CA11.

The new NHS website below is very well worth a look. Hospitals are not only listed but evaluated. I certainly know which ones I would go to! At the very least you will know what questions to ask if you are sent to one which has not entered its data. Good luck!

Great little church. No end of people wanting to chat and get to know us. We went as a family on holiday and we're very glad to be in good company whilst away from home. Praise was led by acoustic guitar. Sunday school was exciting for the kids, learned about palm Sunday and we're invited to share with the whole church at the end. And our baby was happy to play with toys set out on a Matt at the back of the hall. the preach was interactive and simple, with a real sense of relevance and deep truth inspiring us to grow in relationship with God.

Great food. Expensive compared to some but worth it.

The Royal Thai Restaurant

4 Bishop Yards, Penrith CA11 7XU, UK – 01768 891998

The restaurant has changed hands again and is no longer known as the Royal Thai. However, we had an excellent meal here. The food is all freshly cooked and authentic, staff are friendly and attentive and for Thai it was good value for money. Highly recommend!

Quite exspensive but worth the cost. Bit difficult to understand the thai accents of some of the staff at times tho. We will definitly be dining here again.

Queen Elizabeth Grammar School

Ullswater Rd, Penrith CA11 7EG, UK – 01768 864621

Amazing atmosphere. Great educational system. Couldn't ask for more. Fond lifelong memories.

Possibly the best school in the area. They are selective about their admissions, and as a result attain high academic results. Their range of subjects at GCSE/A-level may be relatively small, but the teachers are genuinely enthusiastic about their respective subjects and this shows in the results they get. There's a wide range of extra-curricular activities available to all students too. The only thing that lets the school down is that some of its facilities are relatively dated, however, this does not stop it from being a fantastic institution.
