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 Memories - a Memory of Littlehampton.

We came to Littlehampton in the Summers of 1957-61. We stayed at Mrs Squires B n B in Albert Road. I spent my time either on the beach, the fun fair or just walking around the town (I was about 8 years old at the time). My dad and I played on the Putting Green/Crazy Golf on West Green, when did this close?. I remember a speedboat called Miss Littlehampton and a severe gale one night which almost blew the Helter Skelter in to the River Arun. We also fished from Baltic Wharf. I remember the shopping Arcade in the High Street and the Railway Station being constructed entirely out of timber. The was also a Hall on West Green where Variety shows took place. I've spent a couple of holidays here in the last year, the promenade/beach are much the same but the town itself has changed considerably (not for the better)

I remember another family staying when we were there and an outside toilet. Mrs Squires had two children, Tony and Janet. Tony is a Littlehampton councillor. Mrs Squires husband, Bert? worked on a local farm/smallholding. The last year we stayed there, Mrs Squires has an inside toilet and bathroom installed, ah, luxury!

I was looking for something quite different when I came upon this post. Had to comment as my son has just bought the house in Albert Road that Mrs Squires lived in. She was a lovely Lady I remember her well. I passed her house on the way to the shops often, she always had a friendly word about my boys.I didn't know she did B&B, where did she put you all it's not a big house.
