  • Well Natural

    Queen Street, Salisbury has been home to Well Natural for 30 years but only under the current ownership since 2015. After an established career in a London chain of health stores, and keen to do something for himself, Sanjay Patel bought the popular Salisbury store. ‘If you want a healthy lifestyle we cover most bases and can meet most of the needs of a weekly shop either instore or online. We stock healthy foods including dairy free, gluten free and vegan options, sports nutrition items, books, skincare products and even environmentally friendly household goods. Supplements is our biggest section full of vitamins, minerals and raw food ingredients.’ With an emphasis on high quality brands and knowledgeable staff you know you’re going to get the right advice and products. Renown for being relaxed and friendly they pride themselves on offering a personalised shopping experience and are on a first name basis with most of their customers. The café serves local food suitable for all diets, nutritional juices are made to order and even the coffee comes from a local roastery. Their recycling service means pill pots and Ecover bottles can be refilled at a fraction of the cost. ‘We hold seminars and courses here and there are plans afoot to open more stores. Come and visit - browse the informational leaflets and chat to our staff, we’re here to help.’ ...»

  • Love Food

    Lucinda Bevan is a nutritional therapist & chef with a keen interest in the brain. She provides one to one consultation, advises businesses & restaurants on nutrition and can come to your home to run lively and informative nutritional cookery demonstrations with your friends. Her latest venture is 'Love Food at home' making home cooked food for people local to Marlborough. Her popular Christmas hampers are a treat - beautiful seagrass hampers filled with delicious homemade goodies. As a nutritionist, the real difference with Lucinda’s approach is that she understands the link between eating well and feeling good. “At my cooking demonstrations some people come to learn recipes that will help them with depression or anxiety whilst others may have seen ingredients in the shops in the “healthy eating” aisle, such as spelt, quinoa or buckwheat but they don’t know what to do with them. Quinoa can end up as revolting mess or wonderfully delicious depending on how it’s cooked. I show how to do it well while explaining about the ingredients and the benefits for a healthy lifestyle.” Those who've attended Lucinda's nutrition workshops or cooking demonstrations comment on how friendly and sociable those events are. Those who've tried her food love it - it always disappears very quickly!...»

  • Nordic Walking with Ashley

    Ashley Sandy learnt to Nordic walk when living in Switzerland in 2006, and has always been interested in improving her own health. The joy of exercising while walking through beautiful countryside has remained with her, so in 2015 she decided to qualify as a Nordic walking instructor. ‘I love Nordic Walking – you get great exercise, while exploring new places & views, and loads of fresh air. Nordic walking makes you stand tall, you use more muscles and have better posture. Add a gorgeous view to that and you feel like you’re on top of the world.’ Living near Marlborough, Ashley runs her Nordic Walking classes at some fabulous locations including the Marlborough Downs & Pewsey Vale. It’s a low impact cardiovascular exercise that by adding poles uses 90% of the muscles in your body. It’s fabulous for general fitness & can help people with high blood pressure, stress or those recovering from injuries. ‘Nordic walking is great fun as it’s so sociable. Beginners can start with a taster session to see if it appeals and after that they can do 4 x 1 hour lessons spread over four weeks. This helps you build up the techniques and your fitness and at £35 is a steal.’ Once you’ve learnt how it’s done you can join Ashley for her more easy going walks, workout walks with intervals and drills or adventure walks to discover new parts of Wiltshire. ...»
