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.
WivenhoeFirst are also involved with the Wivenhoe Business Association who are supporting local businesses and traders and there are many initiatives in place to support local business’s. You should have received the “Wivenhoe Book” which is a directory of some of the business’s found on this website, you will also see a new Map and Noticeboard by the entrance to the King George V playing fields, which was erected on Tuesday 5th July 2011 and we regularly fill it up with new Leaflets.
The Business Association have now finished delivery the latest edition of the The Wivenhoe Directory 2013-2014 to all the properties in Wivenhoe.

The Meditation Trust teaches courses in Transcendental Meditation (TM), with a new course starting Saturday 18th May in Wivenhoe with Dr Gemma Beckley (Clinical Psychologist and Independent TM teacher). TM is the most powerful key to unlock your inner potential for self-healing and personal growth because it is simple, effortless and natural and therefore works for everyone.TM is not concentration or visualisation, nor is it about controlling the mind. We simply allow the mind the freedom to be still! This blissful peace allows the body to gain very deep rest (much deeper than sleep), producing benefits in all areas of life as we emerge from the silence of meditation refreshed and revitalized by the elimination of stress from the body. Scientific research indicates a number of mental and physical health benefits e.g. normalisation of blood pressure, improved sleep, reduced anxiety and depression.
The course is taught over three consecutive days during which participants gain the ability to practice the technique correctly and effortlessly on their own and are fully equipped to enjoy its benefits in the future, with free support and guidance from their teacher for life. For a free information pack and for more details about the Wivenhoe course, call the Meditation Trust office on 01843 841010 (office hours mon-fri 9am-1pm), email email@example.com, or take a look at the website www.meditationtrust.co.uk.
