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!

Halifax, Newport, Isle of Wight - really helpful staff when I went to sort out my elderly relation's account.

Local Chambers of Commerce for PO30 3JE. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done.

What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

The Dower House Surgery

27 Pyle St, Newport PO30 1JW, UK – 01983 523525

I have been with the surgery for about 30 years. Fortunately I have not had to visit on a regular basis, but whenever I have phoned up for an appointment, I have got one almost straight away (this is provided you do not need to see a particular doctor, which I realise is not ideal for people with long-term problems). The waiting room is pleasant, with comfortable chairs but my experience is that I have not often had to wait long. I have never experienced any rudeness or unhelpfulness from any of the staff!

As a patient I received care form Mr Georghiu from a previous attendance. He was a great aid in my injury and care. He performed great surgery which has lasted and continues to work well with time. I would highly recommended him as a surgeon to anyone who would be considering his care

Mr Georghiu did a great job of my operation, I am now fully recovered and my shoulder feels perfect. He listened to my specific case and took the time to explain pros and cons for each scenario. I hope he will still be at St Mary's when I next manage to break myself!

The services are very relaxed while still sending you away with a good clear message from God and filled with the presence of the holy spirit. Also the preaching is filled with humour 😊...and there is lots of tea and cake If you want it! Thanks for your part in my life's journey Church on The Roundabout πŸ’–πŸ’–

I've been worshiping here, meeting friends & family, eating amazing food and joining in with many of the great activities here. It's a fantastic place to feel Jesus & the energy from people. Children are so welcome, cared for & free to be themselves. My first Sunday I turned up with my son (13yr old then) & we were handed a fry up which i was over the moon with, hahaha God works in mysterious ways & I love it.
