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!

I was very impressed with the proffessional and fast service that I received whilst dealing with Borron Shaw. I would 100% use them again

Used Borron Shaw 3 times in the past 3 years (sold 2 , purchased 1) Each time the experience was made so much easier by their professional and helpful staff. Communication was excellent at all times despite my difficult and sometimes unreasonable demands nothing was too much trouble.

Wigan Dental and Implant Centre

44 Whelley, Wigan WN1 3PQ, UK – 01942 826366

Highly recommend this practice. Dr Waris Patel is a fantastic dentist with a fabulous team of staff, offering excellent service and aftercare. Every step of treatment was meticulously planned and clearly explained. I've finally got my smile back. Thank you Waris.

I literally can't stop smiling! I used to be camera shy, painfully aware of my crooked teeth. Not only that, I suffered with constant mouth ulcers from regularly biting the inside of my mouth with a protruding canine. Waris spoke to me on a number of occasions about the possibility of braces and I decided to go ahead with Invisalign treatment. I am absolutely thrilled with the results and found the treatment to be pain free, convenient and people only realized I wore braces if I chose to tell them. The level of customer service and advice given are always to a very high standard, I have complete trust in the practice and highly recommend my Dentist to anyone.

mydentist, Atherton Road, Hindley

51 Atherton Rd, England, Hindley, Wigan WN2 3EA, UK – 01942 258888

I've just moved to this surgery and can't compliment it enough. My dentist, Leanne, is proactive, professional and caring. I had a white filling replaced and it looked far better than my original. Haven't experienced emergency care yet, so we will have to wait and see about that side of things. The only issue here is parking, but its really a very minor comment.

Royal Albert Edward Infirmary

Wigan Ln, Wigan WN1 2NN, UK – 01942 244000

My lovely mum died there on shevington ward on September 25th 2015 and all I can say is thank you so very much to all the staff on the ward who were there not only for mum but also for me ...especially to ELAINE who was on shift on the morning my mum died, she stayed close by and talked me through what to expect in my mum's final hours and was there to give me a cuddle and reassuring words when the death occurred, you all allowed mum to have her own private room and let me stay over, I know mum appreciated all you did for her and I especially did, it just made those hard last days bearable and for that I will be forever grateful x

I have twice had the pleasure of visiting the PIU department as a patient. From the gentleman at the desk in reception, to the ladies in the cafe I was treated with friendliness and help. When I went into PIU the staff were welcoming, friendly and explained my treatment as it went along. The staff were happy, kind and totally efficient.

I was sent here from Leigh Infirmary to have further investigations carried out. The staff in the Ambulatory section were first rate - despite having a whole array of tests done, I was never kept waiting between any two events for more than 20 minutes. The nurses were very kind, reassuring, and went out of their way to keep me comfortable during my visit.

Isherwood Skip Hire

1 Cemetery Rd, Ince-in-Makerfield, Wigan WN3 4NN, UK – 01942 866155

As a building contractor you need the right team in place, and that means getting rid of your rubbish quick at the end of the day. We've used Isherwood's for about 12 months to date and never been let down once. I can ring in the middle of the afternoon to arrange collection and the skip has gone by the end of the day. 5 stars!

I phoned round a few skip hire places and these were by far the cheapest. Ordered a mini skip, delivered on time with the minimum of fuss and the nice lady arranged for collection within a couple of hours the same day! A big thumbs up from us, will use again.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Ince

Summat To Ate Steak Restaurant & Function Rooms

48-50 Market St, Hindley, Wigan WN2 3AN, UK – 01942 255150

We visited Summat to Ate last Friday and they really made us feel welcome when we arrived. It is always a bit of a worry going to a steak restaurant as a veggie (husband is really into steak!) but they catered really well for me surprisingly. The veggie lasagne was beautiful! We would definitely consider giving this restaurant a try again. Nothing was too much trouble and all the staff has a smile on their face even though they were rushed off their feet. My husband also commented that his steak was spot on too and he can be pretty fussy!

Gorgeous food have enjoyed every time I have been. I love the hot plate that you cook your own steak on, wasn't sure if I would at first but I really like it. Healthy cooking. The option to have it cooked for you is also there which is good. Would definitely go again. Excellent offer during the week for a cheap meal that is lovely. Very nice room as well.

La Cava Restaurant

174 Wigan Road, Hindley, Wigan WN2 3BU, UK – 01942 234712

Paid a visit to La Cava last night for my wife's birthday and what an amazing place!! Cool interior with some contemporary style, crisp white table cloths and linen napkins and the staff were polite and attentive. The food was fantastic, fresh, hot and full of flavour. We had a mix of appetizers, starters and mains and there wasn't anything we didn't love, together with a lovely light bottle of Merlot. It was a great evening and the ambience was lifted further by a guy singing some classic Neil Diamond type ballards. And the price was a great surprise too!! A real gem of a find. Well worth a visit and somewhere we'll be visiting again soon!!

Absolutely love it here! The food is excellent and so is the service!

The Mahabharat Restaurant

136 Market St, Hindley, Wigan WN2 3AY, UK – 01942 523115

Very nice atmosphere, quick services, food cooked well. Good selection on menu. Wish beer was served colder and had better cocktail elsewhere for same price. Overall good night out. Excellent staff x

Mahabharat is a really nice indian restaurant with good takeaway options too. The food is always delicious and never had any faults with it. The staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome, maybe come around to check on you a bit too often but it's not necessarily a bad thing. The manager (I assume) is lovely and have seen him give free things in the past (gave us a free drink refill and a table behind us a free naan bread to try as they had been talking about it previously). The prices are very reasonable too and the decor is lovely. Would definitely recommend.
