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!

29-33 Finkle Street, Kendal LA9 4AB, UK – 0800 554 1586

This 5 stars was for the lovely lady did my money transfer today and not fit the other one who made me feel not welcome by berating about being able to transfer money via my phone if I had the app. If I wanted app I would get it. Do you not want face to face customers after all your adds stare we are all about customers. Oh and one other small point why is yours the only bank in kendal not dog friendly. I have been a customer for 30 years ish and would just like to bank as I want to bank.

Fantastic service, really helpful staff, offered advice on how to save money in the future on tyres

Kendal Town Hall

9a Lowther St, Kendal LA9 4DL, UK – 01539 793102

Been inside this Town Hall and the woodwork is of old school and first class craftsmanship Well worth looking round. This is where Alfred Wainwright the famous walker held office has Treasurer. Did talk to someone who used to work in the Town Hall and she had no idea Alfred had a son.

Nice building with some great features. Generally only the toilet is open to the general public (unless you have a meeting or coffee morning or exercise class). The wooden wall around the door is due to the deteriorating sand stone from the walls and balcony.

I had emergency treatment here after a cricket ball hit me in the mouth. John was absolutely brilliant, very professional, reassuring and gentle. I am pleased to say he has taken me on as a patient. As somebody with a bit of a fear about dentists I was immensely impressed by the care I received. Thank you.

Had emergency treatment here. Outstanding.

Sandes Avenue Dental Practice

5 Sandes Ave, Kendal LA9 4LL, UK – 01539 739911

I am so pleased with my implants that Dr Arfan Iqbal has done for me. I travelled from out of town to sandes avenue as I didn't feel confident with the advice I was given from another dentist regarding the treatment I needed. I will certainly will be returning and will advise other people to go to see him too. Thank you Dr Iqbal I cant stop smiling!

Because of funding problems in the NHS, I was unable to get the non-cosmetic dental treatment I needed. I contacted a few dentists able to undertake implant surgery, but only Arfan Iqbul recognised the urgency as I had a badly infected molar that had split down to the root. Arfan removed the tooth, gave time for the infection to clear and healing to take place. Next with his experience and expertise, he placed the implant and abutment somewhat forward of the extraction site where the jaw bone was thicker thus removing the need for a graft. This made the process months shorter. The crown is larger than the extracted molar and covers the gap where I has another tooth removed when I was in my early teens. (There is, of course, some place left to either side of the crown to enable cleaning.) This means I have no gaps and can eat comfortably again. I'm immensly impressed with not only Arfan's work, but with his relaxed, warm and confidence- inspiring manner. He thinks 'outside the box' to achieve the best possible result. He discussed the treatment plan with me and I never felt pressurised in any way, nor were there any hidden extras. I would highly recommend Arfan to anyone. He is a brilliant dental surgeon, who is also compassionate and caring towards his patients. The atmosphere at Sandes Avenue is welcoming and friendly. All the support staff, receptionists and dental nurses are amazing. I want to thank them all for their excellent service. I felt I was with family and at home! Bless you all.

Captain French Surgery

The Gillinggate Centre, Gillinggate, Kendal LA9 4JE, UK – 01539 720241

I went here for a Vasectomy and saw Dr White. The surgery and waiting area were superb, and the receptionist was helpful. But of course, I was going for a vasectomy, so the important thing is being relaxed. I am pleased to say he did not have a tray covered by a sheet, that was pulled back dramatically to unveil a row of sharp and scary looking instruments. Oh no. I got up on the bed, we chatted about life, he occasionally said "you might feel a scratch", and then ten minutes later, it was over. Easy, friendly, and very professional.

Excellent doctors & chemist

Brilliant,helpful staff, do their best to keep traffic moving. I have no complaints at all, thank you.

It is what it is, but on my visit the staff we less than helpful. However, more recently they were great. So it may just depend. One point to note, it can be busy and wait times can be quite long at times, rather down to the extremely poor design/layout. They could take a lesson in layout from the Carnforth Recycle Centre! Part of the problem may be down to the size of the site though.

Nursery and Preschools

Brewery Pre-School

122A Highgate, Kendal LA9 4HE, UK – 01539 722833 x215

The Brewery Preschool is a small nursery with 2-3 educators and 6-10 kids attending daily. It was perfect for us as I felt my little one was not ready for a large pre-school and here he got a smooth transition and lots of 1:1 attention. We managed to settle without ANY tears! I love the variety of skills that children learn - the very first thing my little one (aged 2) brought back was a strawberry tart, one of the many they made that day. Besides cooking there is a lot of writing, letter recognition, counting, social skills and fun activities outside - bikes, slides, scooters, sand and water play Assessments every half a year are really helpful - I would not have known that we had to work on managing emotions, now it is a conscious effort for me as a mum. I also love the fact there is no telly at all but there is a lot of books reading going on!

The Brewery preschool is a very special place. Every child is cared for and respected as an individual. The teachers go out of their way to make sure not only the children are happy but so are the parents. The setting is small so the children get all the attention and education that they would receive from a childminder, but they also interact with more children of their own age. They feel safe, comfortable and happy there. I have seen both my two transform from babies into confident children and I can't thank the Brewery enough for this. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Thanks Lizz and Bronte for all your hard work it is appreciated!
