Great bank but if you ever need to speak to someone I wouldn't recommend going here as the queue is always a mile long and takes forever!

Use this bank alot. Service is slow as there is only 1 person serving which is annoying. Other staff can se your waiting but dont opent he till.

Local Chambers of Commerce for DY2 7HP. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Dudley Town Hall

St James's Rd, Dudley DY1 1HP, UK – 01384 815577

Went last night to see Katherine Ryan who was, as always, superb. The venue is a little old fashioned but easily accessible with nearby parking £1.10 from 7pm to 7am. Seating was okay with a good view of the stage from the balcony and staff very friendly. Acoustics were fine for oration but probably less so for music. Bar ran out of bottled water and I suspect that this was because it became almost unbearably hot in there. Now I know this October weather is unseasonably warm but I got that hot my glasses were sliding down my face! This didn't stop us from having a great night though and if you ever get the chance to see MS Ryan just go she's fantastic.

Brierley Hill Civic Hall

Bank St, Brierley Hill DY5 3DH, UK – 01384 573381

I attended the Civic and was very very pleased with the attentive and understanding staff. Everyone was helpful and informative. I attended one of the christmas party evenings, it was better than the copthorne hotels events. I have attended a few events at the copthorne and thought they were very good, to be fair I would rate them high. However the copthorne has nothing on the civic .....I would always choose the civic now for the following reasons 1. The food was fantastic..........served by very attentive staff. The food was beautiful, hot, fresh quality food. 2. The DJ was excellent music to suit all ages, styles and groups. 3, The staff...were the best, they did all they could to make us comfortable and ensure we had a fab evening. All smiling all interested all seeming like they loved what they were doing. The room was decorated beautiful, classy without being stuffy it was a Hollywood themed evening Wow, lights, dressed tables,and chairs and excellent stage lighting and dressings.4. all of us who attended were treated with respect and valued, we felt important ..........special. I would recommend it for staff, christmas parties ..............you wont get better !!!! I also attended the britains got talent and we took children to an excellent panto!!! The children loved it, god pricing of tickets, great fun show..magical. A place to create memories with your children without breaking the bank...again amazing we are so lucky to have this venue in the Black country cant wait for the next christmas events!!!!!!

We went to a Xmas do and New Years disco and we thoroughly enjoyed both nights. The disco on new yrs eve was brilliant loved hearing 70's tunes.

Dental Surgeries

S A Benson Dental Surgery

Dental Surgery, 393 Halesowen Rd, Cradley Heath B64 7HU, UK – 01384 637835

The staff here are very caring and professional. I had my first extraction here a few weeks ago and it was over very quickly. The dentist gave me good instructions on how to take care of my mouth at home and some good pain relief tips too. Thanks for your good care.

I’ve been a patient here for several years now and I’ve always had brilliant service. The receptionists are helpful and friendly and the dentists are professional and approachable. The dentists are also very mindful of nervous patients like me.

Bhandal Dental Practice

74 Birmingham Rd, Rowley Regis B65 9BA, UK – 0121 561 3526

A good dentist I have used this dentist for years -I don't go too often but when I do I have never had any problems with anything they have ever done with my teeth .A fantastic friendly dental practice

Purity Dental

74 Dixons Green Rd, Dudley DY2 7DJ, UK – 01384 252387

Excellent friendly and professional staff, I’m very happy been with these many years

Fantastic staff, from receptionist, nurse and dentist, who managed to fit me in this morning when the pain from my tooth hit biblical levels of pain. Cannot thank everyone enough for taking all that pain away. Thank you so very much to all the staff

Rowley Healthcare

Hawes Ln, Rowley Regis B65 9AF, UK – 0844 499 6615

I have attended this surgery for 19 years. Sonia the manager is NOT racist... I have found her to be very supportive and understanding... She went to bat for me with one of the local hospitals and has always been willing to listen. Leanne her deputy is one of the most caring, gentle and sincere people I know. Deb the nurse is an old fashioned nurse with a caring heart and good skills. She always calls back and is very kind. The reception staff are all welcoming and go out of the way to help. I have not had a problem with them ever. My husband and I have chronic health issues and I am disabled... although I miss Sarah, and get frustrated by their use of locum doctors it's not their fault there are not enough GPs. That's why they call you... to try to stretch the appointments they have. You want more appointments? Elect someone who won't cripple the health service but don't blame these people. The surgery is old but clean and accessible. It is not dilapidated. Parking is a problem but it's on a good bus route. When my husband and I needed help, the people here did all they could for us. 4 stars because I think they should hire an ANP to manage care in the absence of a full time GP. I'm a nurse and trained District Nurse. This surgery does not deserve the bad reviews it has here. People have used this to make complaints: they should bring those to the surgery instead of defaming it.

I have just spoken to a lovely lady who is a Medical Receptionist and her name is Karen Brain. What a professional and a breath of fresh air. In one phone call she has sorted myself and my partner, rearranged dates and given excellent advice also. It was a joy to speak to her which is why I feel compelled to give this feedback. I hope your employers understand what an asset you are to the practice and how informative and helpful you are. What a genuine person that helps people because that is what she does.

Very friendly

Russells Hall Hospital

Pensnett Rd, Dudley DY1 2HQ, UK – 01384 456111

Just spent 5 1/2 hrs in A&E. The doctors were brilliant and the treatment excellent. My only disappointment was at admissions the nurse made my husband think he shouldn’t really have been there and twice said he would have to wait at least 4 hrs and the wait was getting longer!! I know people go to A&E when they don’t always need to but please don’t judge everyone the same. Something that seems simple can be quite serious as was my husbands case.

Of course my son had to be ill on the busiest day of the year so far. When I arrived at a very full A&E I was told there was a 4-7 hour wait with 118 people in front of me. It was only about 10.30am. However my asthmatic son had low oxygen saturation due to a chest infection and we got to see a doctor within 20 minutes. He was xrayed and admitted onto C2 children’s ward very quickly, and I am very grateful for the treatment he received. Yes they were busy, yes they were understaffed, and yes admittedly not everything on the ward ran like clockwork, nor were there enough nurses per patient, but my son’s care was still good and the nurses were caring and lovely, and the doctors were friendly and approachable. Thankfully he is on the mend, and I am grateful to the lovely NHS staff that helped him get better. Thank you.

I was pleased with the meal today. We ordered from across the menu and took advantage of a couple of offers. (Our server helped us maximise the impact of our discounts.) Still not at all cheap but the service was good and the food was lovely. Drinks are expensive but we got a slight discount on cocktails (there was a deal between 4 and 7 and also 9:30 and 11).

Brilliant service and fantastic food. The staff here are always really friendly and nice and I would happily visit again. Brilliant place. Arriba!

Primary and Secondary Schools

Jesson's Church of England V.A. Primary School

School Street, Dudley DY1 2AQ, UK – 01384 816825

I was at jessons early 1970s miss Robinsons class the best teacher. And a trip to Dudley fire station.

I'm in two minds over this school. Children feel happy an safe. But the school is more interested in plays an always getting the parents involved . This is fine at times but the children are losing alot of time paying attention to their class work . They have to keep the children's education as their focus an not lose sight on this.

Blowers Green Primary School

Blower's Green Rd, Dudley DY2 8UZ, UK – 01384 818490

rubbish so boring as well so snoozeee only joking some one from the school has 4a for English and 3b for maths also pupils fake fires by smashing the fire alarms

BEST School ever😂

Tividale Community Primary School

49 Dudley Rd W, Tividale, Oldbury B69 2HT, UK – 0121 557 1765

Oh I remember Head Mr Chapman from 1970s/80s. "Air of leadership"? Ha! He was a bully; a one-note, red-faced authoritarian coward with violent & sadistic tendencies. I personally witnessed him on more than one occasion repeatedly strike & manhandle little children (as young as 5yrs) in such a shamefully violent manner that he'd be serving time now & outed all over the news/social media. Seemed to get on very well with that other shocker of a bully, Miss Scott. Back then, so many remained teachers until retirement who were mentally & morally unfit to ever be one. Damaged many futures. It saddens me how teachers are viewed & treated these days, now that there are proper professional standards & vetting, and with so much more for them to contend with and be burdened by - five stars for the majority of you. Take care.

LOVE THIS SCHOOL HERE FROM 2009 TILL 2017
