When Lucy & Benny brought in their giant sweet jars, filled them with ‘Scoop & Weigh’ wholefoods & then trundled them off in a reclaimed trolley, bedecked with ivy, they made us all smile. A fine example of how to reuse, recycle & reduce waste with style!
Friends of the Earth
For better health, a more sustainable diet & to protect our precious environment, Friends of the Earth are encouraging everyone to give up meat & animal derived products during May (& hopefully beyond!). Sign up in the shop…

We’re now showcasing and selling some of the amazing arts and crafts produced by Coachwerks makers. In the shop we’ve got striking photographs by Cyril Holas and stunning pottery by Rachel Entwistle and Alice Duck.
Rachel’s pottery is tactile and earthy. Her pots, bowls and jugs are sometimes partially glazed to reveal the underlying textures.
Alice creates beautiful, quirky homeware, each piece is a contemporary twist on tradition.
Cyril Holas combines unusual angles, stark contrasts and mirrored effects in his evocative black and white, analog photography.
After talking to some of you we’ve changed our opening ours to better fit in with your days. We now open 9am-5pm on Tuesday and Thursday so that you can drop in to the shop on the way back from the school run. We are open as usual 10am-6pm Wednesday and Fridays and 9-5pm on Saturdays.
Tuesday: 9AM to 5PM
Wednesday: 10AM to 6PM
Thursday: 9AM to 5PM
Friday: 10AM to 6PM

We will also be open during some evenings. Watch this space.
Pictured below are just some of the wonderful organic pulses we sell as ‘Scoop & Weigh’. At Coachwerks Wholefoods we love pulses because they are so versatile, healthy & nutritious.
If you buy ‘Scoop & Weigh’ pulses from us they are affordable too!
Fantastic photography by Cyril Holas @ Coachwerks Community Darkroom. Beautiful bowls by Rachel Entwistle, potter @ Coachwerks.
The UN has declared 2016 the International Year of Pulses . This is because pulses are such an important part of a healthy diet. On Wednesday 6 January, people from all around the world will be marking this event. At Coachwerks Wholefoods we’ll be doing our bit by giving customers a 5% discount on our range of ‘Scoop & Weigh’ pulses. If you bring your own packaging, you’ll get a further 2% discount!

To help people make the transition to a healthier, plant-based diet, every January is Veganuary. As people who have made the transition ourselves, we @ Coachwerks Wholefoods are happy to give advice. Shopping with us is easy, as we are 100% vegan! Our shelves are a testament to the fact that a vegan diet can be varied & delicious. We have amazing breads, fantastic fresh fruit and vegetables; wonderful dairy alternative to milk, yoghurt and cheese and much more besides! We also sell a range of yummy vegan treats. Plus vegan toiletries and household products, many on refill.
We are working hard to get the shop ready in time for the Coachwerks Christmas Bazaar on Sunday 20 December, so watch this space. The walls and ceilings have been painted (using recycled paints), sinks have been put in, lights have been put up (environmentally friendly low-wattage LED bulbs, of course), the counter is in place, and the shelves will go up next. We have local suppliers lined up to provide the tastiest wholefoods, breads, fruits and vegetables.
We will be open for more hours:
Tuesday through Friday: 10am to 6pm
Saturday: 9am to 5pm
