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.

Whitecity - a Memory of Port Talbot.

I was born in the Whitecity in Enfield Street in 1966. I have fantastic memories of my childhood. Going to Lloyd's shop on the corner of Henshaw Street for sweets where my friends Allison and Mark Reese also lived. We had the best bonfire around and all took shifts to stop the raiders whilst the others would go on duty raiding Beech Street and Sandfields Road bonfires. Long summers down the beach and fair. All the neighbours would sit out on their chairs at night talking to each other and doors didn't have to be locked because things were safe and you trusted each other. Street parties and Whitsun marches were all included and regular Sunday school. My siblings and I couldn't wait for the Alpine pop man to come around and I even used to eat cockles from the cockle van as a child! Everyone had a nickname and weren't known by their name such as Peggy, Dai Dog, Twigge, Paddy and of course Lawrence the Black and Tomas. I went out to play all day and had so much fun with not an electrical gadget or phone in sight. Such precious memories x
