For 60 years, Lathams discount store has been offering a vast shopping experience and amazing prices in the heart of the Norfolk Broads. It has everything from great value everyday essentials including groceries, toiletries and DIY to clothing, homewares and gifts, not to mention a garden centre and Scallywags pet shop.
Lathams was first opened by Ken Latham in 1963 as a ‘piscatorial paradise’, a homage to his love for fishing on The Broads, and the store quickly became popular with local people and holidaymakers alike.
When Ken retired in February 1989, Lathams joined the family-run Norfolk discount group QD, who has since invested in the premises to expand the shopping experience for customers and built a dedicated Lathams Fishing Tackle shop opposite the main store.
At Lathams, you can always be sure of Value Guaranteed, with items across the store cheaper than other retailers or price matched. Shop big brands at small prices too, from Regatta to Emma Bridgewater.
Pop into the garden centre for a stunning array of top quality plants at amazing prices, including bedding plants which are homegrown by the QD Group in their very own nurseries. Treat your furry friend with a visit to Scallywags pet shop.
Customers at Lathams can sign up for a free Reward Card, offering 10% of their next shop, plus special deals, exclusive discounts and even a gift on your birthday. To get a Reward Card, simply pick up a form during your visit.
Also located in-store at Lathams is Flour & Bean Café – a family run bakery, using the highest quality, local ingredients to prepare mouth-watering artisan products. Pick up a loaf of freshly baked bread to takeaway or sit down in the café to enjoy delicious cakes and fancies. Whether you’re looking for a quick coffee, light bite or a full meal, Lathams Flour & Bean Café is a must-visit for breakfasts, lunches and dinners, as well as everything in-between. Alongside the best barista coffee, the café is licensed to serve cold beers, wine and prosecco. The afternoon tea is also not to be missed!

Business Waste Solutions is a commercial waste specialist helping Norfolk businesses boost their bottom line. Of all the additional costs bombarding business owners at the moment - waste collection doesn't have to be one.
We support pubs, bars, takeaways, restaurants, retailers and offices with great value waste collection, providing bins from 240 litres all the way to 1100 litres. Whatever your commercial waste needs, we can support you. It’s your bin - we just pick it up!
We believe transparency is key. There’s nothing more frustrating than paying the price you agreed only to be hit by excess weight charges or spotting additional fees hidden in complex contracts. And unlike national providers, we won’t hold you hostage. We offer one fixed blended monthly or annual cost you can pay via direct debit, or pay annually to receive a 5% discount.
On average, BWS customers save 30% on what they’ve been quoted with a national supplier. We’re based in Norfolk which means we have fewer transportation costs and can pass on those savings to you.
Quality customer service
When you’re with a national provider, flagging a missed collection, querying a charge or needing to discuss a change in your commercial waste needs often come hand-in-hand with hold music.
Like you, we’re small business owners so we know the value of being able to get someone on the other end of the phone when you need them.

Stef would like nothing more!; 07376716983
Things change, and so do your commercial waste needs. If you own a seasonal business for example, a weekly collection may not be enough at peak times but you don’t want to commit to more regular collections in the quieter months.
The same goes for if you’re hosting an event, growing your business or winding down. BWS offers flexible, scalable services to suit your needs. Our services are tailored to you. Let us know what you need when you need it and we’ll do everything we can to accommodate your commercial waste requirements.
It’s becoming increasingly important for businesses to operate as sustainably as possible - and less waste means less cost.Operating in accordance with the waste hierarchy, we look to prevent, reduce, reuse and recycle waste wherever possible.

As a small business, we have a first-hand understanding of the mounting pressures you’re experiencing. This is why we started the business and we will go above and beyond so you can benefit from cheaper, quality commercial waste collection.
And, as a local commercial waste service provider, every pound you spend with BWS remains in Norfolk, contributing to our economy and supporting our local communities. Everyone’s a winner!

Coffeesmiths was founded in 2021 by a coffee crazed guy called Arron, that’s me! Having worked in the coffee world since I left University, I have now begun my own coffee-based adventure with Coffeesmiths.
Starting off in a converted Rice Horse Box, I was travelling Norfolk and beyond on the weekends serving my locally roasted coffee. I thought to myself that I could do this full-time, so here we are! Now we have a permanent unit on Market Place in North Walsham along with the trailer which is still in operation at events over East Anglia.
Coffee has always been the priority. That is why we use only small and local business to source our beans. Using the Broadland Blend from JavaBean who are based in Scottow – we can create incredibly tasty artisan coffee that is unrivalled in freshness. Sometimes only a matter of days pass between the coffee beans being roasted and then served in our Shop and Trailer.
We do not just get our coffee beans from nearby, but our cakes and pastry offering are also both sourced from within 10 miles of Norwich. Again, this guarantees freshness and quality along with a excellent range of Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Free options. We change our menu every couple of weeks, however some favourites are Sea Salt Brownies and Vegan Sticky Caramel Buns.
Our choices don’t stop there. If you like to mix up your coffee and explore into different flavours, then we have you covered! With over 12 syrups to choose from at any one time you can always create your perfect coffee. Allergens are also covered, with Lacto-Free, Almond, Soya, Coconut, Oat and Skimmed milk all available every day.
Our shop in North Walsham is right in the centre of Market Place, with a beautifully hand-made breakfast bar in the window, which is perfect to perch and enjoy a Flat White and watch the world go by. We will be offering some external seating in the summer months too. Perfect for a grab-and-go breakfast but also if you need to pass an hour by sitting in. There are power sockets and Wi-Fi for those that might be working too.
There is cheap parking within 3 minutes’ walk, free disabled parking on the Market Place so we are nice and accessible. We are very excited for the Summer approaching and beyond, as we settle in North Walsham and perhaps some other towns in Norfolk soon….!
We look forward to seeing you

Enhance Massage is proud to offer its clients several massage therapies from their base in Wymondham, looking after customers from Wymondham, Norwich, and the local area in Norfolk. They provide both sports people and non-sports people with sports massage, myofascial release, and trigger point therapy. So, whether you need to improve your performances, recover from an injury, have postural issues, or simply want to stay healthy then it’s worth getting in touch.
When you first visit Vicki Askew at the clinic in Wymondham, she will first conduct a thorough consultation and assessment of your requirements to ensure she provides the correct treatment.
So, what are the benefits of the sports massage and associated therapies provided by Enhance Massage? Well, they are numerous, so let’s have a closer look at the most important.
Improved Sporting Performance
For the more active people who regularly take part in sporting activities or gym goers, there are some obvious benefits to sports massage, hence the name. By working the muscles, skin, fascia, ligaments, tendons, and scar tissue, is enables the body to work more efficiently as you will increase strength, mobility, flexibility, and improved recovery time. Sports massage also helps to alleviate muscle soreness from over exertion and the small tears in the muscles fibres that are created during physical exercise.
Relaxation & Stress Relief
Even if you are not the sporting type then a sports massage can help you to reduce stress and be more relaxed in life. There a several reasons for this but the most important are that a) a massage releases the releases of the ‘happy chemical’, endorphins in the body, improving your mood, b) encourages the body to produce various stress releasing hormones, and c) helps to support the normal functioning of your nervous system.
Better Circulation & Lymphatic System Function
Sports massage also helps to keep good circulation and lymphatic system function, which are key to being generally healthy in your body. Massage helps in this area because it helps to remove lactic acid and other waste products from the body and blood supply, and therefore helps the body to process the good stuff (nutrients, vitamins etc.) and keep the body in homeostasis.
Why Should You Visit Enhance Massage?
As you can see from the benefits listed above there are really not many people who wouldn’t feel the benefits of a sports massage and other therapies provided by Enhance Massage. Obviously, it is called sports massage for a reason, in that the way it’s done provides real demonstrable performance enhancing benefits to athletes, but even if you’re not the sporty type it really does help you to stay healthy.
When Can You Visit Enhance Massage?
At the moment Vicki is open to customers 9 to 5 on Monday’s, Thursday’s, and Saturday’s, but we understand that she is also available for evening appointments and can be quite flexible to suit your schedule.
