Lovely helpful staff

Came in today and had a few things to sort out. "Shez" was the ladies name I think. Great service and really helped me out thank you. Exactly why I bank with Natwest.

Service here used to be quite slow and sluggish but has definitey improved vastly in last 3 months. They could improve by having a separate cash desk for business customers at busy times especially Fridays.

Dental Surgeries

Quedgeley House Dental Practice

Unit 39-42, Space Park, Olympus Park, Quedgeley GL2 4AL, UK – 01452 886954

I had my first appointment on Thursday - great communication, was seen quickly and wonderful dentist & care (I'm usually terrified at the dentist's but Georgia was friendly and made me feel well looked after).

I've been there 3 times now: 1) initial assessment (Sep 2017) (after 20+ years the filling of a molar fell off with the inner tooth wall). Although my mind was set on an extraction (and implant later) I've been explained all the options. 2) extraction - a few days later, don't know why people talk about months. Nothing to complain about although it was a difficult job as the tooth was already shattered so every root had to be pulled individually. 3) a general cleaning / scaling (indeed for this it was I had to wait a month, Oct 2017) Every time the staff was polite and helpful, no delays with the appointment (although my extraction might have caused one for the next person, sorry!) and no issues with the payments.

The Limes Dental Practice

168 Stroud Rd, Gloucester GL1 5JX, UK – 01452 523089

Twas the week before Christmas and one of my teeth broke off from below the gum line on the Sunday night. This was traumatic for someone who never has anything wrong with her teeth. I made an emergency appointment with Andrew for the Monday where he cemented the tooth back on with a warning that it might not work. In deed it didn't. So on the Wednesday I had 2 appointments . In the first he prepared my remaining half tooth and performed micro surgery on my gum. This was followed by 3D scans. Throughout the whole procedure I felt no pain and suffered no bleeding. I returned a couple of hours later for the second appointment. Andrew had made a new half tooth from the 3D scan. It was a perfect fit and within minutes I was ready to go out enjoying the Christmas feasting. I cannot praise the practice enough for their care and attention and the extremely fast turnaround in making and fitting the replacement tooth which is indistinguishable from the original.

I have been with The Limes Dental for about nine years now. Dr Andrew Connolly took over about 5 years ago and has transformed the surgery. It is now a bright, modern practice with friendly staff who know their patients. I have never had my teeth in better care and since Dr Connolly took over that care has improved drastically - he is a great dentist whose care is second to none. I needed some crowns fitted to some of my teeth and was quite nervous about this as I hadn't had anything like this done for a very long time . All the treatment was completely pain free - didn't even feel anything from the anaesthetic injections. Most of my crowns were done using moulds that were sent away and two weeks later a ceramic crown was fitted to replace the temporary one fitted whilst you wait but now, after a lot of tech investment in the surgery, they can make crowns on site for the same day! They have invested in machine that will make your own permanent crown in a few hours - this makes life so much easier as it can be done start to finish in one day. I would easily recommend The Limes to anyone.

Messenger Dental Practice

Messenger House/33 St. Michaels Square, Gloucester GL1 1HX, UK – 01452 523723

Great dental practice, patient care by dentists and nurses excellent, friendly and helpful receptionists nothing is too much trouble best dental practice I’ve ever been registered with.

This dentist is in my view, unique. I have lived all over the U/K and I have never come across any dentist that can rival this one for customer service and relaxed treatment. From the moment of first contact with the reception team right through to the treatment was like noghing I have ever experienced with a dentist before. Well done team.

Dr N Siva

Quedgeley Medical Centre, Olympus Park, Quedgeley, Gloucester GL2 4NF, UK – 01452 728882

Really poor service from the practice reception staff unprofessional service unable sort even simple referrals however the nursing staff are very good kind and friendly doctors practice able to get an appointment within a day or two which is good. Compared to other local surgery's. would give it more stars but for reception staff let a good practice down

Gloucester Health Centre Dr N A McDowall & Partners

The Park, Gloucester GL1 1XR, UK – 01452 891110

Brilliant surgery, the doctors who are there now are organised and very helpful especially for my son who has numerous health issues.

Wonderful doctors at the practice, almost always run to time but the new appointment system is a nightmare. If you can’t get an appointment on a Monday until Wednesday and phone at 9 am, how can it be that all of Wednesdays appointments have all ready gone? Awful system!

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.

The medical staff were superb, very professional and caring. Was seen quickly. The building is a bit worn around the edges but is very clean and kept tidy.

I stayed here for just over a week in the respiratory ward (floor 8 ward B) with pneumonia, all the staff were very attentive and caring and looked after us all very well, clearly overworked but made it a lovely recovery for me. And the food was so nice! 😀 Thank you!

One of the better churches in Gloucester, although being very close to the bridge means the intermittent rumblings of passing train carriages can break concentration.

Cash 4 Clothes

Unit 15, Severnside Trading Estate, Sudmeadow Rd, Gloucester GL2 5HS, UK – 07845 855588

I have used Cash For Clothes which was a good service, and they weigh the clothes in front of you and give you cash on the spot, which is never wrong. They don't check the items that carefully, except for the heavier things - I had several things accepted that had small marks or stains.

Happy with service xxx

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.

Shanghai Restaurant

131 Bristol Rd, Gloucester GL1 5SA, UK – 01452 331688

You can't really go wrong for what is included. All of the starters were incredible, especially the shredded lamb. The black bean sauce was quite salty, but other than that every dish was tasty. Service was a little slow, but that actually made the evening nicer. It allowed food to settle and time for chat. Would definitely return.

All you can eat buffet menu which alljws you to try new things. There us z vegetarian menu as well. Good service as well

Aroma Indian Restaurant

Beautiful food. Little bit different to the usual Indian cuisine. Very authentic. Super friendly staff. Really lovely atmosphere.

Public & Preparatory Schools

Wynstones School

Church Ln, Whaddon, Gloucester GL4 0UF, UK – 01452 429220

Being a Rudolf Steiner adherent I am so overwhelmed that this School Wynstones has adopted Waldorf teaching derived from the first Waldorf School founded in Stuttgart and that Margaret Bennel and Coral Nokes have annexed to Rudolf Steiner method. It is good to establish a school away from the city especially when Wynstones School was founded in 1937 2 years before Europe got into struggle and that the German Waldorf School was closed by the nazi government. We should be thankful that the Waldorf Schools in Britain were able to thrive during the nazi conflict from 1939-1945. Margaret Bennel and Coral Nokes were aware that education needed a renewal and that Rudolf Steiner enforced this. Wynstones and other Waldorf Schools around Britain and the world must carry forth Rudolf Steiner teaching. Stephen Blasby

2nd oldest Steiner-Waldorf school in Britain. Huge campus and a manageable number of students. Remarkable facilities and beautiful infrastructures.
