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 SN2 5DU. 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!

Hawthorn Medical Centre

May Cl, Swindon SN2 1UU, UK – 01793 536541

Excellent staff and good doctors very pleased big thumbs up to all the staff and doctors

If you understand the stress the NHS is under, you can see that the staff are trying their best to get people seen. I have had no problems with the staff here and find that if you speak to them instead of shouting and demanding appointments it makes the process easier. There are other ways to get urgent care if you cannot get in at the GP. Carfax is a valid option, and although there is a wait, you will still be seen by a medical professional, and there is a child clinic at Moredon that can see a sick child. If you ever watch the news you will see the crisis the NHS is in, and the demand for appointments is higher than ever with GP's surgeries having over 10,000 patients and so few GP's. A lot of blame goes on individual surgeries, but it is a problem for surgeries all over the country and people need to realise that! I am pleased with the service my family has received at the surgery and have not had any problems in the 8 years I have been a patient there. The only reason I don't give 5 stars is the pharmacy in the surgery, There is sometimes a queue there, and at reception, so can get a bit chaotic.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

fantastic place to get the help you need

Swindon Health Centre

1, Carfax Medical Centre, 1 Islington St, Swindon SN1 2DQ, UK – 01793 541655

New centre and so much better than the last one. Ground floor is the drop-in clinic plus pharmist. Upstairs is the doctors and dental practice. At the front there are bike racks (not quite finished). Been only twice but my impression is that it is a busy place and which the medical staff work with committment. My last waiting time was about an hour; all depends on how busy it gets.

There is also a worship meeting in which all gather together to sing hymns and listen to talks or to people sharing their testimony of the Saviour and experiences of how the gospel has made a difference in their life.

Bath Road Methodist Church

16 A4289 Rd, Swindon SN1 4, UK – 01793 529263

The chapel was built in 1880, at a total cost of £5631. By 1890, Swindon was able to pride itself on having the largest Railway Engineering works in the world. For the next 100 years this impressive suite of Methodist buildings provided the base for the work, worship and witness of its congregation in the Old Town neighbourhood, and throughout the whole borough. Radical changes in railway engineering and production methods heralded the end of the era of the vast railway workshops. A successful civic drive attracted many new employers to Swindon, and the rapid expansion of the town challenged the Christian denominations to plan and act ecumenically together. In 1969, Bath Road committed themselves to work closely with Immanuel United Reformed Church and Christ Church with St Mary’s and from this the Old Town Ecumenical Parish was born. Following Bath Road’s centenary celebrations in 1980, the congregation embarked on a £350,000 scheme to transform the whole of the church internally, with the emphasis on accessibility for the handicapped, and flexibility for the buildings to be used in all kinds of different ways to serve both church and surrounding community. The rest of the site incorporated 23 sheltered flats with warden cover. To this lively church community you can be assured of a warm welcome. The following pages will give you some idea of it’s place within the Swindon and Marlborough Methodist Circuit, and of its many sided activities.

St Andrew's Methodist Church

31 Moredon Rd, Swindon SN25 3DF, UK – 01793 829335

Excellent community church. Hosts Pilates and Zumba classes, Rainbows, Brownies and Guides, Art and Craft Groups, Bible Study Groups, and Messy Church. Also home to Great Western Youth Band, with its Percussion and Rising Stars groups, on Saturday mornings.

Find Recycling Centres

Swindon Household Waste Recycling Centre

Swindon SN2, UK

It's a tip. You can dump stuff here. It's great. But seriously, if you don't like the waiting times, don't go during busy periods. Problem solved.

Went down this afternoon challenged for I'd had none was told next time I would need some. Asked why was told politely that they were cutting down on people from outside swindon using the tip and the result was I went straight in and out within 5 minutes. I used to use Purton tip but now will most likely use sbc tip well done all.

Saunders Metals

Rodders

50 Hinton St, Swindon SN2 8BY, UK – 01793 613396

Excellent service I was stuck with a broken metal bed frame and had no way of getting rid of it. Called Rodgers on the afternoon of the 13th of April and they arranged collection for the next morning between 9 and 10 am. I didn't even need to be in just left it outside for them. Will definitely use them again and would highly recommend them to anyone else.

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Swindon

Istanbul Restaurant and takeaway

52 Manchester Rd, Swindon SN1 2AG, UK – 01793 423272

The Kebabs, chips, and quarter pounders me and my partner bought today were fresh, hot, and on time. The gentleman who delivered our food was polite and our food tasted great. We were also given a complimentary 2 litre bottle of 7up as our order surpassed £18. I would definately recommend a visit or telephone order to Istanbul Restaurant to anyone.

Always fresh food. Very nice and cultural service in the premises and delivery.

Mela Indian Restaurant

122 Victoria Rd, Swindon SN1 3BH, UK – 01793 522558

Good food, nice place to eat. Highly recomend.

Eaten here many times and always enjoyed good food and service. It really is worth trying some of the less traditional curries as there are some real treats to be found on the menu

Prezzo Swindon

Unit 1,Regent Circus Complex,Swindon, Swindon, Wiltshire SN1 1FA, UK – 01793 486477

Staff were very friendly and the facilities were great but the food I ate was average. I had the meatball starter and the slow roasted rabbit ragu for main and it was nothing that I couldn't have whipped up at home. The pizzas that I saw did look nice so I'd probably go back just to try them out. Reasonably priced but I did expect more hence the three stars.

Food was fine, what you would expect from a good chain restaurant. The service although sometimes a slow was OK, we were there as a large group (7) on a busy night. However Prezzo, in my opinion, was overpriced considering the food offered. In a town that has a lot of italian restaurants... you just need to do a little bit better than this Prezzo. I would go again but only with some form of discount or voucher in my hand.
