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!

4-5 Regent Circus, Swindon SN1 1UG, UK – 01793 615061

Fantastic bank... trustworthy traditional ethical REAL values. As it says on the tin "Good with money"

Barclays Bank

28 Regent St, Swindon SN1 1QB, UK – 0345 734 5345

Ok I guess. The people were talking so quiet and I couldn't hear them. I guess it was the people screaming because they just got $1,000,000. Oh well

There are no people operated counters. The banking is done by machines which often means the queues are short. I find it straight forward but I often see people (especially the elderly) struggle and require assistance from members of staff who are not always readily available.

Coventry Building Society Swindon

41 Regent Circus, Swindon SN1 1PX, UK – 01793 521108

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!
PREMIER SURFACE CARE

1 Swift Ave, Swindon SN25 4GU, UK – 01793 228729

Jayson is a true professional, he works very hard to achieve the finish that you wish for. He has turned my old drive into something akin to a resurfaced area, at a fraction of the cost. Make no mistake, Jayson can give you a new drive, at high quality, in a few days. JAyson, thank you for your hard work, you have done a great job on my 30 year old tarmac frontage.

Great job. Jayson cleaned and sealed our driveway and we were very impressed with the results. It's the next best thing to having a new driveway, and it was a very professional job was done, with some serious hard effort clearly being put in also!

I had many issues with my teeth and Ben, the dentist at bath road, was excellent in spotting potential issues and fixing my dental problems.

Thank you for your services. Raf

Brilliant place. Wonderful staff.

North Swindon Practice

Thames Ave, Swindon SN25 1QQ, UK – 01793 705783

Staff are brilliant and very helpful, unfortunately the appointment availability lets it down. Had to wait nearly a month for an appointment but i would be better by then or in hospital! Something needs to be done with regards to GP appointments but other than that, great surgery

Great service from a team who seem to care

Hawthorn Medical Centre

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

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.

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

Merchiston Surgery

Merchiston Surgery, Highworth Rd, Swindon SN3 4BF, UK – 01793 823307

Dr Penny Milsom is lovely, so competent, helpful and so kind. The recepcionist was also very friendly and polite! Thank you for your services today!

Last week when I called the service was great call was picked up straight away and waste the same day

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.

Abbey Meads Medical Practice

Abbeymeads Village Centre, Elstree Way, Swindon SN25 4YZ, UK – 01793 706030

Dr Hawkins, Dr Ochoa absolute credit to the profession. A delightful practice with some great Drs - live savers and a credit to the NHS. Agree with other comments the appointment system is awful, expecting patients who are unwell to wake up at a certain time, get to a phone and be on hold for an appointment is really not a solution that works at all. This needs reviewing urgently. As for the locums, very much agree with other post, but this may be recourses. Receptionists are good, and candour of 99% of the Drs is first class... WHEN... and IF... you can see one.

Appointments can only be booked on the day for the limited number of appointments free. They use a lot of locums so quality of advice can vary. Receptionist can usually get a doctor or nurse to call back with telephone advice where appropriate.

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

Bath Road Methodist Church

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

Very nice gothic building

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.

Rodbourne Cheney Baptist Church

Cheney Manor Rd, Swindon SN2 2PE, UK – 07415 603696

A traditional Baptist fellowship trying hard to renew itself in the Spirit, at present in re-birth pangs. A genuinely welcoming fellowship nonetheless. Well worth a visit if you are sympathetic to neo-Pentecostalism/Charismatic movement.

Great place to work

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.

New Delhi Indian restaurant

3 empire house Groundswell road, Swindon SN1 2LT, UK – 01793 976871

Taste: Really great flavours and perfect balance of spice. Food was clearly freshly made to order and the portions were well sized. Hygiene: Can't fault it really, all areas of the restaurant seemed good apart from a little food on one seat. They have a 4* Food Hygiene Rating. Overall: Would recommend and will be back there when next in Swindon!

For me one of the best if not the best Indian restaurant in Swindon and I've tried most. The food is full of flavour, excellent portions and reasonably priced.
