Coronavirus: Thank you for the amazing support we have received from our customers during the last few months. Our office and factory are based in a rural area which has made it practical for us to remain open for business.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, coasters and placemats are still not available but we hope to offer these again soon.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Childhood - a Memory of Alrewas.

Having just stumbled across this website and viewed the photographs, I immediately went into nostalgia mode. I was born in Alrewas in 1938 in one of the small cottages in Main Street just down from Mansell's bridge, and then moved to The Old School House in Park Road the following year, where I spent the next 12 years. I have many memories of the village as it was in the 1940's and early 1950's, ranging from place names , shops, farms, business premises, and people. I can still recall most of my pals who grew up with me during this austere period during , and immediately after the War, and have many happy memories, and understandably a few unhappy ones. It would be wonderful to get in touch with anyone who remembers me from this perod to chat over old times, and to make comparisons with village life today.
So come on you Old Codgers get in touch.
