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!

Excellent

HSBC

20-21 Electric Parade, George Lane, London E18 2LX, UK – 0345 740 4404

Nice staff. I had an interview with Mr. Anthony. Very polite and friendly person. Explained me everything and gave me all the details concerning opening and managing my personal account. At the end of the interview, I met the manager of that branch Ms. Natalia. She asked me about my experience with HSBC and about my last interview. Very efficient and professional manager!

NatWest Bank

88 Station Rd, London E4 7BB, UK – 847888444

Small but helpful branch, handy to have one locally but feel that more staff are probably needed on the Saturday opening.

Building Societies

Nationwide

Extremely helpful telephone enquiries. Really good knowledge. Thank you.

Local Chambers of Commerce for IG8 8AS. 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!

Friendly staff

Chigwell Road Reuse and Recycling Centre

Chigwell Rd, Woodford IG8 8PP, UK – 0800 389 9918

Not entirely sure how one rates the local dump! So, it's "OK". It can get really busy, so think about quiet times (if you have a choice), the "we need to see you proof of address and ID" before you can go in is annoying. Some of the staff are incredibly helpful and good fun, others are the opposite - guess what they employee normal human beings just like where we all work.

Nice location. Decent sized.

Kings Road Recycling Centre

22 Larkshall Rd, London E4 7HZ, UK

The shop and the staff are great, really cheerful and friendly. Been going there for almost 2 years now and always had a smiling face greet me.

Good idea. Shame you even have to put some electronics out in the little "maybe sold on later" corner while it's raining before they pass it it to the shop. My printer works, just upgraded. But had to leave it out in the wet...

Dental Surgeries

Smile Design By Ash

6 Chigwell Rise, Chigwell IG7 6AB, UK – 020 8500 0544

I sent my husband Tony there who's afraid of the dentist, until he met Ash. He had a marathon job to do on him but put him at ease and now he's "fixed" will never go to anyone else. Thank you Ash, you are a star!

Visited Smile Design was wowed by the practice polite staff and the high level of service provided for the treatment I received.

Valley Dental Practice

83 Loughton Way, Buckhurst Hill IG9 6AS, UK – 020 8504 5787

Staff were really friendly, my dentist Dr Vy Nguyen was very knowledgeable and confident in her work and treatment carried out today. Was seen in a matter of minutes! Made me felt at ease especially that I fear going to the dentist. Would highly recommend.

Friendly staff and comfortable environment - makes going to the dentist with a 2 year old easier than I expected!

Wood St Dental Practice

176 Wood St, Walthamstow, London E17 3HX, UK – 020 8509 0055

Wonderful dentist surgery all staff incredibly helpful and friendly. Very patient with children. Very lucky to have them on my door step. My son toddler finally opened his mouth them to allow Anna to look at his teeth after a few appointments because he had refused. Due to their patience and making him feel happy when there Success.

Very helpful , professional staff. I use their service many years! They are the best!

Addison Road Medical Practice

46 Ravenswood Rd, Walthamstow, London E17 9LY, UK – 020 8430 7171

I've had a great experience so far, no problems getting appointments either!

Dr J Bailey

107 Shernhall St, Walthamstow, London E17 9HS, UK – 020 8520 5138

I am surprised at some of the negative reviews... I cannot praise the surgery and staff highly enough. They are always friendly and professional and it truly is a family practice as Dr Baileys family also work here. Keep up the good work guys.;)

I've only been with this practice for a few months but am so glad I changed to here and would like to extend my thanks to all of the staff. The receptionists are always helpful and have a smile, and the Doctor is always friendly and puts you at ease. Some people seem to have a slight grievance about waiting times but in my opinion this is to be expected in a busy surgery and is far outweighed by the great service you receive there.

Dr A C Briggs - Palmerston Road Surgery

18 Palmerston Rd, Buckhurst Hill IG9 5LT, UK – 020 8504 1552

Very supportive, cooperative,friendly and professional.

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Woodford Green

Patpong Thai Restaurant

146-148 Station Rd, Chingford, London E4 6AN, UK – 020 8524 7065

Love the food in Patpongs. Never had a bad dish, always had great service and an excellent time. Best restaurant in Chingford.

Excellent food and service, there was a lot more meat in each serving than what I am used too in the Thai kitchen. The service was excellent and very fast. The place is popular so book in advance if you want to make sure you get a table.

The Gandhi Tandoori Restaurant

712 Chigwell Rd, Woodford, Woodford Green IG8 8AL, UK – 020 8505 3212

Good food, sometimes a bit slow (mainly because it's always really busy). Being really busy is (of course) a good recommendation, but it can feel cramped in the restaurant. The food is OK, but I have had much tastier Indian food.

I went when we were the only customers inside. Staff were friendly, but no ambiance. Food was a bit oily, but had great flavor. Probably better on the weekend.

Dynasty Restaurant

139 High Rd, London E18 2PA, UK – 020 8504 0475

Good food with some dishes better than others lemon chicken was a bit thin and deserts are to be avoided. The staff are friendly but a bit scary. But for what your paying you can't go wrong.

A lovely dining experience. Good amount of items on offer. I would recommend going for the all you can eat menu.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Redbridge Primary School

School Lodge, College Gardens, Ilford IG4 5HW, UK – 020 8551 7429

I went here nursery to year 6 I just left this school. It's such an amazing school so many memories I had here but still will. I really recommend this school.

I went here from reception through year 6 and it was great until about 3 years ago where they started caring about ofsted and how the school looked, than the fun competitions and stuff. There's a new headteacher and new building

Ainslie Wood Primary School

140 Ainslie Wood Rd, London E4 9DD, UK – 020 8523 7913

Most of the staff here are amazing however the headmistress came recently under shady circumstances and has very poor/late communication with families. Help for my son when he had speech difficulties was great and there was a lot support for us all. Homework can differ from term to term and sometimes be great for the kids and at other times be lacking. This school appears to be either a testing ground for Waltham Forest or just very adventurous in their teaching methods, sometimes this works out great and other times disastrous with 4-6 teachers per class a year. No continuity which is very important at this stage in life

great the best school i have ever been to

Nightingale Primary School

Ashbourne Ave, South Woodford, London E18 1PL, UK – 020 8989 9987
