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!

Henlow Camp Post Office

220-224 Station Rd, Lower Stondon, Henlow SG16 6JE, UK – 01462 850880

The improvements in service at our local post office are great since moving to this new Location. Although parking is sometimes a little awkward is a huge improvement on before. The new staff are much friendlier and more helpful. I often used to try and collect a parcel that I missed earlier that same day and staff would refuse to even look and see if it was back yet and tell me to come back tomorrow. (Not always easy when they close before you finish work!) But now they never mind checking and always greet you with a warm welcome. The extended opening times are much more suited to people who actually work. It's now a pleasure to use our local post office. Thankyou.

Staff are great both at the post office and at the chemist. Highly reccomend

Dental Surgeries

Shefford Dental Practice

34 High St, Shefford SG17 5DG, UK – 01462 814020

After avoiding dental treatment for almost 40 years I arrived at the Shefford practice quite a nervous patient as you can imagine. On a recommendation I plucked up the courage to make an appointment and have just finished a coarse of painless treatment. ALL of the staff here are most kind and efficient. A special thanks to Doctor Sam whose gentleness and professionalism was second to none.

I've been avoiding dental treatment for 26 years. I ended up here and can honestly say I've gone from a nervous wreck to looking forward to getting the work done. Painless and the premises feel more like a converted pub than a dentist. Wonderful people from receptionists, nurses to dentists.

The Shefford Health Centre

Hitchin Rd, Shefford SG17 5FS, UK – 01462 818620

Highly efficient modern Health centre.

The Haynes Clinic

6-7 Warren Court, Sandy Lane, Chicksands, Bedford SG17 5QB, UK – 01462 851414

15 months ago I walked into the Haynes clinic a busted and broken man and wanted to take my own life. What I got in return is priceless. I now have my family and friends but most of all, my 3 beautiful daughters. I've be given a new way of life and I'm truly grateful to all the staff and so are my family. You can't put a star on someone life and there's not enough stars on this review to show how grateful I am.. I love you all and god bless ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜‡

Excellent set up and staff who really go the extra mile. A busy schedule of work and meetings and staff who have been through the same process. A friendly and caring environment within group and one to one sessions where nothing leaves the room. If you goo in off your own back and with a positive attitude, willing to put the work in, the skys the limit.

Eric & Jon's Budget Removals & Storage

3 Jubilee Pl, Shefford SG17 5JP, UK – 01462 231013

Fantastic experienced from start to finish. My partner and I were apprehensive about using ANY removal companies after reading a lot of nightmare reviews and having to listen to loud cocky men coming around to give us quotes opening every draw/cupboard in the house (without asking) whilst telling us how great they were. Eric and Jons budget removals exceeded our expectation by far. Their quote was the cheapest, they were very fast and effective. came to pack the night before and packed up the whole house within a few hours. Following morning they were on the road as instructed by 5am. Completed the 4 hour drive to the new home and unload two vans within 1.5 hours were everything in tact. great guys !! highly recommend

CC-Cycles

21 Bury Rd, Shefford SG17 5AP, UK – 07751 925266

Over the past few months I have had the opportunity of using CC-Cycles for both my wife's and my cycles. Great outcomes, with a very friendly service. It is good to have such a provision near to where we live. (review written on behalf of my wife)

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.

Fantastic restaurant food is so fresh and an amazing experience for your palette.

Food was very authentic but I thought overpriced considering there was very little actual chicken or veg in my red curry. Filled up on the rice but how much does a little more chicken cost? Decor and service was faultless.
