Love Local Chippenham – Day 2

By Anita Jaynes on 2 August, 2020

Today is day 2 of our Love Local Chippenham campaign sponsored by Goughs Solicitors and today we’re putting the spotlight on Coates Florist based in the town’s Market Place.

The florist is a small family business which was first set up in Bath in 1950 by Mr Coates and expanded into Chippenham. It was later bought by John Harris and his wife Anne 20 years later and today it is run by their daughter and son in law, Jane and Peter Hawkings.

Coates Florist has established a reputation for offering a friendly reliable service always sourcing the best quality flowers, plants and products available. They also stock an extensive gift range which includes the brands Parlane and Heaven Sends. They have a strong following on Facebook with lots of positive reviews and photos of their floristry. Visit @CoatesFlorist to take a look.

Coates Florist creates flowers for every occasion. Pop in to the shop on 25 Market Place to find out more and visit them online at,, email them or give them a call on: 01249 652106. You can also see pictures of their flowers on Instagram.
