Banks & Building Societies around Southport

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!

Barclays Bank

Very friendly staff

Nerd Herd

4 Eastbank St, Southport PR8 1DW, UK – 01704 264212

I brought in an iPhone 5C that I'd bought off my friend. The only problem with it was that there was a crack in the screen. When they checked it they also said there was water damage and they were more than happy to show me proof of this, showing me the inside of the phone. I paid for it and it's like having a brand new phone, I'm so happy with this shop. Even better, they bought my old phone off me that I didn't need so I basically got it all sorted for cheaper than I was expecting to pay! So happy, will be recommending this shop to anyone with phone troubles :)

Friendly staff. Laptop repaired in good time. Will definitely use again.

Dental Surgeries

Dr Stephen Dodd

10 Scarisbrick New Rd, Southport PR8 6PY, UK – 01704 360322

Absolutely brilliant dentist! I had Invisalign along with various other treatments and I am thrilled with my teeth now. They still look like my teeth but just healthier and straight, still completely natural and exactly what I wanted! Dr Dodd is lovely and puts you totally at ease and I have every confidence in him as a dentist- he even removed a wisdom tooth and I experienced no pain whatsoever, very impressed! The rest of the staff are really kind too. All in all I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr Dodd! You won't be disappointed.

Having been unhappy with my smile for many years I decided to visit Dr Dodd to discuss possible options for having the gaps closed and my teeth straightened. As a working professional who is regularly customer facing I was adamant that I did not want to wear traditional style braces, or have veneers, however I still wanted results, I felt possibly a bit to much to ask.... Dr Dodd was fantastic, and after my initial consultation recommended Invisalign (a hidden brace placed on the back of the teeth) which was fitted in no time. The process was very quick and within less than 6 months my teeth were perfectly straight and any gaps I had closed up. I would absolutely recommend Dr Dodd for anybody thinking about having any cosmetic work carried out, you will be in safe hands.

Shoreline Church

Absolutely superb experience. Our event was brilliant using this venue. The staff were extremely helpful and made use of the space a delight. Would certainly use again for future events and would recommend 100%.

Holy Family R C Church

1 Brompton Rd, Southport PR8 6AS, UK – 01704 532613

Holy Family has beautiful internal architecture & decor -- stained-glass ("Jerry") windows; carved & painted wood Stations of the Cross; marble / stone alcoves & statues for both St. Christopher and the Virgin Mary, each accompanied by cherubim; marble/stone accents & ornate (gold?) Eucharist "tabernacle"; and detailed (carved ..Gothic-style?) wooden rear deco of the altar space... Classic -- and numbered, I noticed! -- divided pews with integrated (modern-cushioned) kneeling benches.. Being my first visit, I was unsure re parking, so instead of "street-side", I opted for the neighbouring parking lot (south of the church, entry on Manning Rd., before the junction with Brompton). The Priest was a kindly gentleman, and between himself & the primary Reader, the entire 11am service was clearly audible. The church was not full (plenty of parking-lot parking available, yet many just parked on the street), but there was a sizable congregation. Overall, a good experience, especially for the architecture & decor.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

The team at Premier Nurseries are absolutely outstanding! My child has been with them since birth and is now leaving to go to 'big' school. All throughout those five years my family has been supported with excellent childcare; thoughtful and caring staff and a real feeling of home. The staff at Premier Nursery are all natural carers who obviously love their jobs. It's a heart-wrench leaving your child to go out to work, but Anita & her team have always made that easy for both my child and I.
