Not a very good service when I'd made an appointment to open a new account, no one to deal with me when I got there. Waited over 40 minutes until someone told me that I would need to make another appointment & call back, I made a complaint on line & they sent me 2 bottles of wine for how I'd been treated. Wine was nice looking, pity I don't imbibe alcohol.

Modern And clean floor space with friendly staff. The machines have been recently upgraded too

Synergy Dental Clinic Bury

10 Tenterden St, Bury BL9 0EG, UK – 0161 764 4366

These guys are great. I was petrified of dentists. They put at total ease. Receptionists were great at calming my nerves and the dentist and their assistant were able to provide me with a swift and satisfying service at a excellent price. Couldn't recommend them enough. Hopefully won't need to go back, but for any dental needs, I wouldn't even consider another practice.

Attended this practice recently, I was extremely impressed with the welcoming staff and how everything was explained to me. As a nervous patient is was reassured about my treatment. I would definitely recommend to anybody looking for a dentist.

Excellent GP surgery . From receptionist to doctors and nurses all doing a great job.

Excellent doctor and amazing results. I've been seeing GP , The Ridge medical in Bradford who's is worse GP on whole planet, 1 year and zero results and to book appointment like biding in action. Since I moved to Manchester and registered with this GP , in one appointment my all problem vanished. The DR Rodhwa , is amazing doctor . Thanks for great service.

Moorgate Primary Care Centre, 22 Derby Way, Bury BL9 0NJ, UK – 0161 763 4242

On Saturday I started experiencing severe back pain. I rang 111 and was seen by a wonderful, professional doctor who examined me and provided me with the correct pain relief. From the initial call to the receptionist and doctor was absolutely faultless. I don't honestly know what I would have done without this wonderful service. Thank you to all the staff who helped me and keep up the wonderful work that you do.

I had developed a abscess and my face was swollen got a appointment same day and strong antibiotics was given.. Great experience and very friendly

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 photos posted by Alan Jones and used by Google are NOT the Baptist Church. They show the Parish Church in the town centre. Baptist Churches are simpler affairs. This is a small building not the vaulted Victorian masterpiece that is the Church of St Mary The Virgin Bury.

Luv this Church all 3 ov my boys have been Christened here totally beautiful xx

Christ Church Walmersley

Walmersley Rd, Bury BL9 5JU, UK

I've never actually been to a service at this church but my partner and I have sat in the church garden here at Christ Church most weekdays since September 2014 for lunch. Our little one wasn't even born then. The garden is lovely and peaceful and sitting under the little gate house or on the steps under the bell tower is great. Unfortunately the company my partner works for has just moved to Rochdale?! (lord knows why) so its all change as of tomorrow. We will be back though, this church will always have a place in my heart with great memories and hard ones too.

Had a damaged alloy wheel needed replacing, rang up and spoke to the guy, said text me a picture and I'll check. Text straight back, got one in. Went down, wheel and new tyre ready and waiting for fitting. Wheel balanced and refitted in about five minutes flat, left, job done! Miles better than if I'd gone to any of the major suppliers. Fantastic price, fantastic service, couldn't recommend more highly. Thanks.

Best breakers on pimhole. Nice helpful guys

Asked for an injector for my mazda. Was fantastic service over the phone. It's worth the phone call. I asked many questions and had honest answers. Got my part the following morning and it looks brand new. Seriously for the sake of it just phone them and go on from there. :)

I can`t thank Karl and his team enough for all the hard work they did to rescue my dying KIA Sportage. Really helpful and nothing was too much trouble I would highly recommend them

Nursery and Preschools

Mulberry Bush Nursery Walmersley

741 Walmersley Rd, Bury BL9 5JW, UK – 0161 761 0150

AMAZING NURSERY!! Could not be faulted in any way. Staff are amazing with our Daughter. Always feel welcome and comforted at leaving our daughter there. The Nursery itself is fab, the decoration, outside play and each room have so much for the children to do. We would never even look at another nursery. All our children will be going here. :o) Lauren xxx

We are thrilled that we picked this nursery for our little girl. Sending her in to start at just eight months old, we were a bit worried but the staff put us at complete ease. They really helped settle her down and now she absolutely loves going in. We have complete confidence in the staff, especially the management and those in the baby room - any illness or problems during the day, they are on the phone to let us know, which is brilliant. The site is safe and secure, so we couldn't be happier to leave our baby there. There is always plenty going on and loads of exciting things for the children to do. The staff document everything that goes on in a record book and are always showing us paintings and photos of what our little one has been up to. We are really looking forward to seeing her grow and learn there. We couldn't recommend Mulberry Bush Walmersley more highly.

Mulberry Bush Nursery Walshaw

Stewart St, Bury BL8 1SU, UK – 0161 797 3788

Fantastic nursery, our son has made numerous friends and his development has been fantastic due to the attentive and friendly staff. Everyone at Mulberry Bush has a genuine passion for the children and I would recommend the nursery to anyone.

Mulberry Bush Nursery Tottington

The Old Police House Lancashire, Kirklees St, Tottington, Bury BL8 3NJ, UK – 01204 885656

Our two eldest children both attend this nursery and we couldn't be more impressed with the care that they receive. Our children are very different individually yet each is encouraged to develop, achieve and thrive at Mulberry Bush. We love watching them develop into confident, independent little people, partially attributed to their time at nursery. We are constantly impressed with the daily activities in which the children partake; they are creative and personalised to childrens' interests. The children leave each day with full tummies (lovely food!!) and most importantly after lots of fun. We cannot recommend this nursery highly enough!!

My little lad loves this place. Its his second Nursery and this is by far more superior than his last. It looks well organised and has plenty of interesting activities for him to get involved with every day. The play area looks like fun, it reminds me of the Teletubbie set with the hills and holes etc.
