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!

Magnum Financial Solutions Ltd

Suite 7 The Exchange, Spring Lane, Colne BB8 9BD, UK – 01282 860148

Mark has been excellent from start to finish. My husband is self employed which always makes things a little more complicated but Mark ensured the mortgage process was seamless from start to finish. He helped every step of the way including dealing with the solicitors to ensure our completion date was kept to when things looked a little shaky. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark.

Excellent service! Made the process of remortgaging and applying for a new mortgage totally stress free. Will definitely used their services again.

Money Generator

4-6 Market St, Colne BB8 0HR, UK – 01282 870855

Friendly staff and very helpful got a few good bargains as well

traded my iphone in last week and was suprised at how much i was offered, i got much more cash than i expected for it. The service is very professional and I was handed the cash over instantly. Since then I have been in many times and now i buy all my games from there as they are very cheap. Overall HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - SUPERB 10/10 - just what we needed in Colne.

Asda Colne Superstore

Unit 1, Swinden Retail Park, Corporation Street, Colne BB8 8LU, UK – 01282 870156

Good supermarket large and well laid out. Good choice of items. Only down side to me is they don't sell veg separate, It's all pre package, so if you only want a couple of potatoes you have to buy a pack of them. For that reason I don't go there to often. There is loads of parking, a petrol station, and a tyre fitting depot which is very very handy. Prices throughout are very competitive. There are also other stores in the same parking area.

Just been to asda colne for flu jab staff very polite and helpfull. Appointment on time

Local Chambers of Commerce for BB8 7EG. 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!

Sainsbury's

Windy Bank, Colne BB8 9HY, UK – 01282 663600

Nice supermarket with some good clothes for men, women and children. Reasonable quality at a very reasonable price. Good range of fresh food, and good quality. Bakery section is a little lacking though. Decent cafe with a good choice of food. Staff are very good and helpful. There is a petrol station, but it is not on the site, but only a short distance down the road. There is exelant parking on site and if you have a dog there is a lot of under cover parking which is a god send in summer.

Cafe was easy and convenient, food just okay and prices reasonable for quality of food served. Super market is ace and staff always helpful.

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 Colne

Banny's Fish & Chip Restaurant & Takeaway

Vivary Way, Colne BB8 9NW, UK – 01282 856220

Great tasting fish & chips and well presented restaurant. Also very reasonable price. Worth a visit but seems to get very busy quickly, which is a good sign ! Next visit busier and service was not half as good, although busy didn't seem well organised. Good food standard though. Perhaps avoid three busier times if you ding want very slow service. (At least one table we saw walked out fed up of waiting)

Great place for fish and chips. Quality is first class as is the service. The ambiance of the place takes some beating. Due to the above it gets very busy with queuing required for 10-15mins sometimes. Victims of their own success. But don’t let this put you off, it’s a great place to eat. I have 3 kids who are well catered for with child seats, child menus etc... they wouldn’t go anywhere else for F&C’s!

The Ivy Palace Restaurant

78 Albert Rd, Colne BB8 0AG, UK – 01282 865585

Very good food. Plenty to choose from. Banquet for 10 was excellent. Will go again soon.

Jaipur Indian restaurant and takeaway Colne

I went to lord street up until year five and had to move due to different reasons and I can safely say that it was the best experience of my life. I was was there for six years and I loved every minute of it. I understand that at times it hasn't had the best ofsted reports. But trust you will not find a more welcoming and lovely school. Don't judge it before you have gone in met the teachers and children. A truly amazing school😀😀
