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!

Excellant care from 1st appointment. I was terrified never been for years and from walking in door was put at ease. Had lots done loads of injections numerous extraction and got dentures. 12 days later healing good and couldn't be happier can smile again. Had loads of compliments saying how natural teeth are. Thanks to everyone.

Excellent care

Fence Houses Dental Practice

68 Station Ave N, Houghton le Spring DH4 6HT, UK – 0191 385 2622

After being put off going to the dentist many years ago by another dentist, Beatriz at fence houses was recommended to me when I had an abscess. So glad I went. From the friendly girls on reception to the way Beatriz explained everything she was going to do as I needed fillings and extractions has given me the confidence to continue going to the dentist. Felt nothing as I had the work done apart from the needle which was expected. Wish I'd known about her sooner. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I had our routine check-ups today with dentist Beatriz V Serrano who we see for every dental appointment and treatment. As always Beatriz puts us at ease and carries out all procedures with the utmost professionalism, care and expertise, both of us would like it to go on record just how grateful and happy we are to have such a fabulous dental surgeon look after our teeth. Thank you Beatriz.

Find Recycling Centres

Max Recycle

Blackthorn Way, Houghton le Spring DH4 6JN, UK – 0845 026 0026

Ignore all the bad reviews about this company as a relative uses them for their Autoparts shop Ken's Autoparts in Blyth & Amble and have 660l and 360l bins for recycling, and their experience with them is great. Staff are friendly, bins always collected on time and for the service they charge a reasonable rate. Would have been 5 - star if clearer information was given about what could be recycled, like if a sticker was stuck onto the bin like the council does to the householder's bins. Would definitely recommend to other businesses.

We've been with Maxrecycle for a number of years and never had any issues. Bins are collected on time, every time. Highly recommended.

T T Curry & Son

Blind Ln, Houghton le Spring DH4 6NJ, UK – 0191 584 3382

Have used other skip companies, but this company are excellent. The vehicle turned up dead on time, it was washed and clean and looked like a well presented company. The skip I got was clean inside and out, the doors opened easily, unlike some companies that send trashy skips. I would highly recommend their service from the polite lady who answered the phone, to the polite driver, to the quality of the skips, it maybe just a skip, but excellent service.....

We have eaten here before and it's always been pleasant but recently got taken over by new management and wanted to try it again. We were greeted warmly by the new manager and as it was quiet we had free range of where to sit. Food was prompt and tasty, would definitely visit again.

Hadn't been in years, but popped in for a quick late lunch as we were passing. Had a chicken burger which was lovely. Prices are reasonable. The lady behind the bar and serving tables was so nice and friendly, happily entertaining our baby son when she came to the table. We'll definitely be back soon.
