Welcome to the WivenhoeFirst Website

WivenhoeFirst was originally an initiative from the Wivenhoe Town Council to promote businesses within Wivenhoe. It was started by Peter Hill who was then the Mayor of Wivenhoe. The aim was and still is for the local community to use a local businesses first.

This website continues with this ethos and we hope that it is a useful asset for the community of Wivenhoe and the surrounding areas.

On the right you will find a list of business categories and by clicking on them you will find details of all the businesses in that sector within Wivenhoe.
