TOUCAN Wholefoods in Minehead is celebrating after winning a prestigious national award.

The shop and café in Minehead won the Best Independent Retail Award for 2014 at The Natural and Organic Awards on Sunday.

Sally Everleigh, owner of Toucan, said: “It’s nice to be recognised for having developed this business over such a long period of time.

“I have such a fantastic team who make the store so vibrant and welcoming for customers – it’s a real reflection of how well we work together.

“We’ve been going from strength to strength – last year, I had to open another room for the café and it’s always busy, so I’m thinking of opening another one soon.”

The store was established in Minehead in 1982 and has since moved three times.
