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.

On The School Bus - a Memory of Burgess Hill.

Between 1964 and 1966, I used to travel by bus from Haywards Heath to school in Burgess Hill, going over Keymer crossing twice a day. If we were lucky, a train would be coming and we would get to see the crossing in action. The picture is taken looking south, towards Burgess Hill, and the signal box is visible on the far side of the crossing on the left. We would watch the signalman through the windows of the signal box as he operated the gates by turning what looked very much like an old-fashioned ship's wheel. On one occasion the train, instead of being the usual rather dull electric multiple unit, was hauled by a big mainline diesel (possibly a Class 40) in BR blue and yellow - much noisier and more impressive!
