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!

Marcham Post Office & Stores

16 North St, Marcham, Abingdon OX13 6NG, UK – 01865 391940

A convenient shop with everything one needs to survive the village. I have however experienced great difficulty in obtaining a map of the area (a bigger area). Most of the maps seem to be only of the local area, the surrounding areas being labelled as "the mountains".

Fantastic local store, friendly helpful staff. Lucky to have such a good facility in the village.

Local Chambers of Commerce for OX13 6JB. 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!

Yes, I agree it can be difficult to get an appoiintment but I have always found them helpful when it's urgent. Once there, I can't fault to reception staff or the doctors. Doctor Robertson, especially, has been nothing but caring and wise - seeing 2 teenagers through period of depression (an out the other side) and compasionate support for one member of our family getting through challenging health worry.

Thank you for seeing me so quickly at a busy time. And thank you to the staff who gave a thorough, caring and positive review of my situation and got me the treatment that I needed. I can't say I would recommend it as a place to visit, because I hope that no one needs to go to hospital at all, but if you have a medical problem and a choice, thus is a good place to go.

Very friendly staff, efficient service and very easy to get to. It also offers 30 minutes free parking which is very useful when attending the Minor Injuries Unit.

Abingdon Mental Health Centre

Abingdon Community Hospital, Marcham Rd, Abingdon OX14 1AG, UK – 01865 904894

A really weird place, deathly quiet. Very rare you actually see a patient, just staff going back and forth. Not particularly pleasant inside, no plants, bright colours, just drab and functional. I suppose it's somewhere difficult to like because no-one wants to be there, but difficult to fault as well.

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Abingdon

The Merry Miller

Cothill Rd, Dry Sandford, Abingdon OX13 6JW, UK – 01865 390390

Was recommended to try the Merry Miller and decided to pop in after a Friday morning walk. Very Friendly staff, and had a great chat with the Owner. Ordered some bar food which was really good, and really enjoyed the the surroundings. The beer was kept in very good order, and looking around they really make an effort to bring new customers in, with numerous themed evenings. They are well know for there Carvery on a Sunday which our friends have tried and found to be excellent. They welcome children, and opposite there are some great walks through the Nature Reserve, and Woods. Really good value, and not over Priced. Would recommend.

Great food, friendly staff, real wood fires in the winter. A really decent pub.

Farm House Restaurant

Garford, Abingdon OX13 5HB, UK – 01865 391169

Shame that we cannot have breakfast till noon. Also, it is too expensive: £11.95 for a plate of potatoes and cauliflower with beef meat. The coffee was great though.

Been here a few times. Great for a cup of coffee and a cake. But I wouldn't recommend it for a meal. The food is a bit too expensive for what you get.

The White Hart at Fyfield

Main Rd, Fyfield, Abingdon OX13 5LW, UK – 01865 390585

A firm favourite, always delivers quality food and service

Went here on our 6th anniversary and found the food and serving excellent. Warn atmosphere, brilliant wine and the food! Had seabass in teriyaki with blackened noodles, device! Highly recommended for special occasions and just a good meal out.

Nursery and Preschools

Marcham Little Angels

Anson Field, Morland Road, Marcham, Abingdon OX13 6PY, UK – 01865 819992

I have been working as a professional children’s entertainer for many years and the staff at Little Angels Child care are amazingly friendly, welcoming and you are made to feel one of the family. I hope entertain the children, as Dizzy Dean for many more Christmas’s to come.

Both of my children attend Little Angels and we couldn't be more pleased with the care they receive. Family run with a strong family feel, Little Angels offers a safe and caring environment with an abundance of fun and excellent teaching.

A lovely school with fabulous supportive staff. My daughter loves it and regularly comes telling me about what she's learnt that day. Before and after school care is really flexible and amazing help for working parents. Plus numerous free after school clubs are offered. A very active PTA support the school to fund additional resources and activities plus help to build the school community. Highly recommended.

Fantastic local school that provides outstanding care and education to the children! My daughter loves school everyday and that is what's important for any parent. Highly recommended!
