Local Chambers of Commerce for B30. 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!
Birmingham City Council Parks

Mosely Queensbridge Road Depot, Birmingham Area, Birmingham B13 8QB, UK – 0121 303 1111

The Parks Department at King's Heath Park provided the flowers, including floral displays, beautiful bouquets , and button holes for our daughters wedding and the service was absolutely wonderful. The flowers were breath taking and exactly what our daughter had wanted. Such friendly, knowledgeable and all round excellent service was refreshing and welcome.

Northfield Customer Service Centre

1a Vineyard Rd, Birmingham B31 1PG, UK – 0121 303 1111

Some of the staff try the best they can and are compassionate with the public, others don't have the patience or people skills. I understand it is a very demanding and stressful job but people go in deep distress some as a last resort. The building needs updating and the way people are seen. The waiting room is cramped and initial conversations with staff can be heard by others waiting. All in all its gets the job done if you find your in the right place

I went to Northfield neighbourhood office today. I was served both promptly and professionally. One of the staff( wearing a pink tie!!!) offered me a seat as he could see that I am disabled. Sorry for not getting a name. What an excellent office, well done and keep up the good work Dave Collins

Dental Surgeries

Midlands Smile Centres Selly Oak

476 Bristol Rd, Selly Oak, Birmingham B29 6BQ, UK – 0121 414 1551

Love this place, well worth the money. They were able to salvage my tooth after years of neglect on my part. Friendly and professional. I use their smile plan and was able to save money when I needed emergency treatment.Thank you MSC!

I been going to MSC for many years. The regular reception team is always friendly. As an independent patient I find the charges to be reasonable and really value the extra time that Dr Joshi takes on my check-ups compared to my old NHS dentist. I have also been impressed by Dr Chohan's advice on cosmetic treatments. I feel much more confident when I smile; since I've had some of my old filling replaced. I really like being asked for feedback every time I visit, it makes me feel like they care about my views.

well come and seen on time. very polite and professional dentist and his team

Kingsfield Medical Practice

146 Alcester Rd S, Birmingham B14 6AA, UK – 0121 444 2054

Yes, you often have to wait beyond your appointment time as certain doctors don't stick to the allotted 10mins but instead allow you the time you need. This is worth the wait. There are plenty of doctors to choose from so you can select the right doctor for your needs. You can book up to a month in advance and there's a daily emergency clinic. I've been with the practice for over 30 years and wouldn't go anywhere else.

Kingsfield is excellent in every way. Medical and support staff are outstanding.

Selly Park Surgery

pity about thursday hours :)

One of the nicest doctors surgery I have ever encountered, reception staff are lovely and down to earth the surgery is clean and welcoming and the doctors are caring and very effective, so glad I chose this surgery when I moved to the area x

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.

My mother was admitted to Ward 6 at Moseley Hall Hospital. She stayed there for 6 weeks until she sadly passed away on 27th June. Every member of staff that was involved in her care and comfort were amazing. They were all so kind and caring to both my mother and the visiting family. This made the last few weeks of her life as good as it could have been, given the circumstances of her failing health. Thank you to everyone on Ward 6 from all the family of Emily Carlyle.

Great Staff thank you

Royal Orthopaedic Hospital

The Woodlands, Bristol Rd S, Birmingham B31 2AP, UK – 0121 685 4000

Friendly and efficient staff. Excellent Surgeons, Nurses, Ancilliary Staff, Porters, and not forgetting the excellent physiotherapy staff. In fact all the staff at the hospital were great. The food was great and the standards of hygiene excellent. Nothing was too much for any of the staff who were very caring. Having had 2 knee replacements since March I really appreciated the help and attention I was given. Many thanks to all.

Amazing place yes I had to wait two hours for my doctor but it was worth it I got my answers and it's good to know my hip will be sorted next year.

St Laurence Church Northfield

Beautiful church and grounds.

As a visitor to Northfield, I attended the Christmas Eve Eucharist - my second visit to the Church - and what a spiritual occasion it was. A Church that felt of prayer over centuries, a joyful congregation, which I had also experienced previously, and a sermon that moved me so much I had to repeat the theme to those at home.It is a church family that made me, a visitor, feel welcome. Sadly I have been unable to trace details of the Church leadership as I would like to correspond; how about an inclusion on the Web Page?

Mercian Skip Hire

24 Ebury Rd, Birmingham B30 3JJ, UK – 0121 458 7383

We hired a skip for household rather than business clearance. I really didn't know what size to order and the staff could not have been more helpful. (If you are unsure I would recommend getting something slightly larger than you think you need... clearing out is very addictive!) While Mercian were not the cheapest the helpfulness was the reason we went with them in the end. Skip delivery went well and it was dropped just where we needed it. Pick up was a little later than expected but this wasn't a problem as the skip was well sited and I imagine its de rigueur with skip hire. We would recommend Mercian Skip Hire

After a few communication hiccups the skip was delivered. It was a tricky tight delivery to rear of house but the driver was a lovely helpful man. The guy who solved my initial problems in office was very helpful and agreed to collect skip next morning, even ringing to say about small delay. Would definatley use again and would 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.

This is an excellent restaurant. Food always spot on. Staff are friendly and do everything they can to accommodate. Love the place.

Went in after 10 on a dead night with no one around, great service - friendly and very welcoming. They were happy for us to take our time. Food was good. Bring your own booze from shops opposite. All in all, a good choice for a curry in Moseley.

Royal Watan Kashmiri Restaurant

602-604 Pershore Rd, Birmingham B29 7HQ, UK – 0121 471 1713

What a delightful experience, the food served is sublime. The taste the aroma the freshness in all ingredients is evident down to the salad served on the side. The lamb house specialty on the bone is a must try, full of flavour and meat that fell of the bone. The staff are brillant always on hand! My new favourite curry house look foward to my next visit!!

Some really great food and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be returning here often. The only downside is that parking can be difficult, streets are the only option.

Nursery and Preschools

Selly Oak Nursery School

26 Tiverton Rd, Birmingham B29 6BP, UK – 0121 472 1700

Amazing nursery! Children were ahead of the curriculum when ready for reception. They care deeply for all families while going above and beyond to ensure every child has the best start to their education in a areas, maths, art, forest school, English all children leave with maths and writing skills

When I initially applied for my son to have a place at Selly Oak Nursery School, it was because it was an outstanding rated nursery and I wanted my precious 3-4 year old little boy to have the best start to his educational life as possible. What struck me as unique about the nursery was its clear emphasis on education for the future, whilst at the same time nurturing each child in the present as an individual who could be all that they choose to be. I was not looking for a nursery, I was looking for a lot more than that. I was looking for a nursery school, and as such wanted a place that was more than just a childcare provider and that offered my son the structure in education that he would need to prepare for the transition to Primary School. I had been continually impressed since his admission to the nursery with the staff, activities, learning opportunities and care given to my son. Before he began at the nursery he was a very different child; he was incredibly shy, barely talking much at all to anyone outside of his family group, and slightly delayed in his speech and communication. What I wanted for him was a place he could call his own, where he would learn for the future and be part of an inclusive community of children and teachers. This wonderful place provided him with that in the bucket load, and I will always be grateful for that. He is now a 5-year-old who has almost finished Reception at an outstanding primary school, who is confident both in terms of the rigours of phonics and mathematics, but also importantly with himself as an individual. The nursery gave him the chance to know what it is to be part of a school community, one where he was cared for in a genuinely positive and encouraging way, and gave him the chance to flourish. Selly Oak Nursery School turned my little boy from a child that was introverted, shy, and anxious, to a child that is supremely confident, infectiously curious, and incredibly keen to learn. The nursery embraced anything that interested my son, and opened his eyes to so many new interests ranging from minibeasts, 3D shape drawing, mud kitchens, bread making, role play, sitting down and reading stories, construction... I am so proud of him, but more importantly he is proud of himself, which is such a happy thing for me to see. My child would not have flourished half as much in a structured Primary School environment (where he is now meeting and exceeding expectations) if it were not for the approach Selly Oak Nursery School took with him and his learning – so much so that my youngest daughter will be attending the Nursery School in September. This place is more than just its outstanding OFSTED report; it is an outstanding community of teachers, parents and children, with a strong belief in the importance of education for all children. I wouldn’t recommend anywhere else.

Catherine House

19 Woodland Rd, Birmingham B31 2HU, UK – 0121 475 8416

Highly recommended, both of my children have been here from 1 year until school age.

It isn't about the parent's experience but about the child's. I must say that our daughter has flourished here. The care & development she has received is first class & when the pitter patter of tiny feet comes again, we won't hesitate. Highly recommended.

Ridgway Driver Training

It has been a pleasure to learn with Oliver. His patient and calming nature put me at ease, and enabled me to develop from a nervous driver into somebody who is now fully confident on the road. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Oliver is a brilliant driving instructor and I would recommend him to everyone. When I switched to Oliver from a different instructor I wasn't very confident and had pretty much accepted the idea that I just wasn't very good at driving. However, Oliver was so patient and so thorough in his teaching that by the end I didn't just reach pass level, but finished feeling genuinely confident in my driving abilities beyond the test - thanks to Oliver I passed first time! He is also very friendly and reliable, and I'm really going to miss his Skoda Fabia which was a great car to learn in!
