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!

Came to Cornwall on holiday had toothache which turned in to an abscess. My mouth was a mess really I needed 3 root extractions anyway. I was going to have that done when I get back from my holiday. but they did it there an then absolutely brilliant team so caring and professional. THANKYOU.

Had to go and have 2 teeth removed was seen by a French dentist who was brilliant. Never felt a thing even though I was being a wuss.

Lander Dentistry

3 Upper Lemon Villas, Lemon Street, Truro TR1 2PD, UK – 01872 272777

I had spent a lot of time researching and visiting dental practices in the search for someone that could give me the teeth I had always wanted. I was hugely impressed from my first consultation with Mark, he was very informative, professional and friendly. I left having full confidence he could give me the smile I wanted and I was right! I am so happy with my results, the day after my braces were taken off a complete stranger came up to me to compliment me on my teeth- this would never have happened before! I only wish I had found Lander sooner. Thank you very much.

I had been having problems with my gums bleeding and thanks to the hygienist Rachel at Lander Dentist my teeth have been saved. She recommended that I go and see a gum specialist to undergo some specialised treatment. The treatment was carried out successfully and now I regularly see Rachel at Lander Dentist to ensure I am cleaning them properly. I can highly recommend the team here at the dentist and remain truly grateful to Rachel for being so proactive and managing to save my teeth.

Iain Brown ~ Cornwall Breast Surgeon ~ Oncoplastic & Reconstructive Breast Surgery (NHS only)

Mermaid Centre Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust, Truro TR1 3LJ, UK – 01872 252720

Iain Brown is not only an excellent surgeon who works to the highest standards but his empathy, kindness and ability to explain the processes involved, is second to none. Iain broke the news to me that I had aggressive breast cancer and from then on he instilled in me a confidence in his ability to treat me and gave me the care I needed. I cannot recommend him more highly, not to put too fine a point on it, he gave me my life back.

I had my breasts done in 2008 I never felt very womanly but Ian Brown . . Gave me the perfect breast for my size . It totally changed me I could wear lovely cloths that I couldn’t before and I had so much confidence. 10 years on they are still as good and I feel great.

Unfortunately I ended up in hospital whilst on holiday. The care I received went above and beyond and I can't commend the staff enough. I felt really cared for and am grateful for it. Thanks guys!

I have recently moved to Cornwall and have visited this hospital twice. Once to A&E and once to Outpatients. Both visits were first class. The hospital was extremely clean, staff were friendly and helpful, and the treatment received couldn't have been better. Also on both occasions I was able to park my car without additional stress and hastle!

I would like to congratulate and say thank you to both the refuse and recycling teams who collected where we live [off Porthpean Road] yesterday. Because of an early collection the majority of residents put out their collection overnight. In the middle of Wednesday night/Thursday morning the gusting of the wind blew the recycling and wheel bins over the footpaths and roads. After the collection of re-cycling and refuse nobody would have known that there had been any problems. Thank you to you all and a very Happy New Year

Lovely manager, very friendly and helpful.

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Truro

The Cornish Vegan

15 Kenwyn St, Truro, TR1 3BU, UK, Truro TR1 3BU, UK – 01872 271540

Excellent little cafe/restaurant, serves great range of vegan food options as well as excellent choice of teas and plant based milks. . We had a cream tea which was delicious. Can get very busy so might be worth booking for peak times, we went later afternoon so seating and service available, but could tell they had just served a large number of people. Cakes are brilliant. Must go if you're in the area.

Oh. My. Goodness. What a find! Incredible vegan food in a gorgeous little cafe. It is very intimate but they are very accommodating. Some great food on the menu and cakes in from the Little Green Bakery which are to die for! Highly recommend this place and really wish they'd open one up nearer to London..! May just have to relocate myself....!

The Yue Restaurant

12 City Rd, Truro TR1 2JJ, UK – 01872 273273

This place has the best Chinese food in Truro. They were serving late after a complicated car sale and we were the only people there - we received excellent service and chat that was friendly but not overbearing and allowed us to enjoy our meal. The sesame prawn toast is the real deal! We will definitely be back!!

Excellent food and servicefour of us use The Yue as a pre theatre venue and have never been disappointed. Already booked for our next outing.
