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.

Brook St(Peterborough City College) - a Memory of Peterborough.

I remember spending many days in Stanley recreation ground in the 1960's. Brook St College (next to the rec) is soon celebrating its 70th anniversary and we are looking for memories of college days from old students. Can anyone help please? Frances Louis - an old Peterborian.

My first job was at Peterborough Adult Education Centre (Brook Street) as a junior receptionist, from 1968 - 1970. I was then Brenda Hillson. Mr Michael Chewter was Principal, Mr Edward Storey (well known local author) was Registrar. Mrs Gash was in charge of Financials, and there was also Paul Jackson (?) who was something to do with languages (I think - memory not so good these days!!) Tutors I remember are the Graingers (of the cat fame), and of course John Hutton well known local artist. Shortly after I arrived I was joined in the College by Valerie Simpson. They were happy days and I only left there on marriage and moving out of the area.
