This site has grown and grown over the years, and it seemed important to to offer a more up-to-date service, with interactive functionality for its core users. So, here we are. Essex Recommendations: the blog. Enjoy!
Feel free to send amendments, new suggestions, and any other feedback to recs[at]essex.ac.uk.
Every so often someone sends a request to the University of Essex’ small-ads mailing list for recommended services, trades, facilities, suppliers, etc. Here are some of the resulting lists.
Use the A-Z list (right-hand side of all pages), the site search (top of page), or the Google Search facility to seek reviews of services and suppliers.
Generally we’ve removed the names of people passing comments from these recommendations and in one or two cases we’ve obscured the
details of “services” that come in for some criticism – We don’t want to have to deal with disgruntled people complaining about what’s been said about them!
If you have any additions or amendments, please see our Contact page.
University of Essex staff can control their membership of University mailing lists, including the small ads list, at http://www.essex.ac.uk/contact/mailinglists/default.aspx (password restricted).
Please note: the University is in no way endorsing any of the services listed here, and the webmaster and the University take no responsibility for any actions taken after consulting these lists! Please see managing the recommendations lists for more information.
