“The original Colchester Social Enterprise serving coffee and food with a conscience”
GO4 Enterprises helps unemployed people in Essex access volunteering & work experience opportunities, accredited training and employment. We particularly work with individuals who face significant challenges in life and by buying from our Market Cafe you help us provide them with extra support to achieve their dreams. Contact us for info on other ways you can support us in our work.
Fresh cake, coffee and food served in a relaxed atmosphere, alongside our warm and welcoming market stalls and traders. Open Monday to Fridays, from 9:30 – 16:00; Saturdays from 9:30 – 16:30, Sunday 10:30-15:30.
You will find us in Trinity Church, Trinity Street in the heart of Colchester. We are opposite the main library and so easy to find. Trinity Street is one of the most historic parts of Colchester. GO4 is part of the Trinity Traders, promoting all the shops, businesses and history along the historic Trinity Street in Colchester.
We also have a cafe on the Recreation Ground in Old Heath. For more info on its location and opening times visit its page here.
No more NEETs.
