The last 4 months have been challenging to say the least for many businesses but as an essential store, Planet Health and Organics in Swan Walk, Thame, have remained open throughout the pandemic providing and updating their level of care and service to everyone in the local area.

In addition to being open 6 days a week, the shop is now offering a range of services to suit everyone whatever their circumstances. A home delivery service free of charge is available to all customers, with priority given to key workers and those in greater need. What’s more, the team can prepare customers shopping and orders in advance, to minimise the time spent shopping.

Owner of the shop, Peter Dewdney, says

“We have been and continue to ensure our store is as hygienically safe as is possible with hand sanitizers around and outside the shop. Even to the side of our new refilling station we have provided a sanitizer unit. We are limiting the numbers of shoppers in the store however to date we have experienced little difficulty and everyone asked have felt safe, secure and happy to be shopping again.”

As Planet Health & Organics approach their third decade in the town, they have reorganised the shop creating not only additional space but a new and organised layout. The ground floor now displays an extensive range of natural supplementation, herbs, nutrients and specialist products together with all health and beauty. The first floor has organic and specialist foods, chilled foods and an eco-friendly refill station. They have also expanded the range of pre-packed nuts, grains, rice’s, flakes, pulses and seeds.

Peter continues,

“We look forward to welcoming back all our customers when the time is right. A very specific thank must be given to all our customers who have supported us throughout this period of lock down. Your loyalty and support have been greatly appreciated”.

Hello @followers Welcome to the July 2024 Issue of Look Local Magazine. I want to dedicate this months letter to three NEW local businesses that I have been made aware of. First up we have Beauty at No.11 which is a sustainable beauty studio that has opened in Watlington. Owned by Watlington resident, 23-year-old Georgina Eales, the salon offers the full range of treatments that customers would expect to find in larger salons, but with the emphasis very much on sustainable, hypo-allergenic products. Georgina, who learned her craft with respected beauty industry leaders Clinique and Charlotte Tilbury, has clear ideas about how to set her business apart from others. She is the only beauty studio within a 25-mile radius to offer Hona, a pioneer of hypo-allergenic nail products. Other innovative services include Elim, a medical grade pedicure treatment, which uses state of the art ingredients to remove hard skin from the feet. You can find our more about Beauty at No.11 on their website The next business I want to give a shout out to is a small, sustainability-led retail business called Comhla (pronounced - coh-la), which means ‘together’. Founded by Lucie Harrild, the brand aims to help customers step away from fast fashion by enjoying a variety of brands and services using their mantra: Buy Well. Mend. Extend. Lucie was a sustainability professional for the last 20 years and then in 2022 ventured into the world of Comhla, in 2023 she opened a small boutique in Long Crendon to showcase the concept she is building online into a reality for customers. For more information about the business or to shop, visit them in person at Manor Stables, Long Crendon, HP18 9FF or head to their online shop With the online world in mind, and with summer well and truly upon us now, this leads nicely onto the third new business I wanted to bring to your attention to. Cool Heat Solution specialise in cooling, heating and outdoor living essentials for your home and garden. Turn to page 12-13 for their Top Picks of the perfect products to transform your outdoor space and embrace alfresco living! Or head straight to their website,, to shop their extensive collection of top quality products from the UKs best loved brands.
