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.

Ilchester Crescent - a Memory of Bedminster Down.

Living in Ilchester Crescent was just fantastic.
Lots to do and friends to play with. I remember the shops in particular the newsagent and me following my brother to deliver newspapers in 1965, mike from Presses the newsagent would get the papers ready. Methodist chapel from 1958 onwards to Christian Endeavour club.
Making dens on the dumps and then over the A38 into the downs to play. The black Bridge. St Oswalds youth club. The boys club.
The hop at St Oswalds.
Clark’s the grocers , stricklers the butchers, Moylands the grocers, Dyers the fruit shop. The coop club..
Such great memories. The fantastic park with old John who used to sit on the seat and watch ( creepy now)...
Garages in the park..
My name wax Judith Foreman, moving from Bristol in 1972 but a regular visitor to magnificent Bristol....
