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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Citadel Leisure Centre

S Harbour St, Ayr KA7 1JB, UK – 01292 269793

Joined today and was slightly apprehensive as I haven't been it for 30 years. Well to say I was surprised is an understatement. It was extremely well organised, great modern equipment in abundance, very well presented and just gave you a feel good factor. It's a huge facility catering for everything: -Large swimming pool -Diving pool -Children's pool -Viewing galleries and seating for completions -Cafe with great choice -Steam rooms -Sauna -Jacuzzi -State of the art gym -Huge selection of fitness activities/classes Above is just a flavour of what's available Highly recommended !!!!!!!

Nice enough - average value at £3.70. As with most places inevitable the staff are friendly. Pool was quiet at 8.30. Car park is out of the way and quiet, but abit tatty which made me think twice about security. Right on harbour so nice little walk after.

Currie's Removals & Clearances

4 Castlehill Gardens, Ayr KA7 3SY, UK – 01292 618620

Fantastic Friendly Service, Couldn't Ask For A More Helpful Company When Moving Home. I Can't Fault Their Service And Their Price Was Very Reasonable Considering The Quotes We Had From Other Removal Companies. Never Had To Use A Removal Company Before However I Would Definitely Use Them Again As It Made The Whole Experience Of Moving Home So Much Easier.

Five stars aren't enough for the service I received. I contacted Curries after my aunt passed away and they helped me clear the property as well lift the carpets as this was insisted on by the local council. The items I required keeping were stored and delivered to me at a convenient time. I dealt with Mary on the phone who was excellent from start to finish. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!

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.
