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.

I was born and lived in Alsager for over 40 years and remember Bank corner. I was a newspaper boy for Mr Dovey.  Also have a sepia photo of Hancocks store which I also recall quite well as a young boy.

I used to deliver The Evening Sentinal, Crewe Chronical and Daily papers for Mr Dovey. I used to ride my bike from Oakhanger all the way up there deliver my round and then go to school at the Comp! I think I got paid around £5.00. Happy days. Fond memories.
