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.

School Holidays - a Memory of St Leonards.

Friends of our family once lived in Railway Cottages, Bexhill Road and in those days when you were young and your families were friends you tended to call the adult members 'uncle' and 'aunt'. Their real names were Harry and Rene Eaton. I used to stay with 'Uncle Harry and 'Aunt Rene' during school holidays, and what a treat it was, because Uncle Harry was a signalmen at Bo Peep Junction. I used to go down to the signal box when he was on duty and he would sometimes let me pull the signal levers, under his supervision of course. The next duty would be to log the passing train in, what a treat, I never wanted to go back home when the time came. What hazy happy days these were, gone forever into the mists of time. Also Uncle Harry was a keen bowler and played at White Rock. I also had a game and played at the one at West Marina right opposite where Aunt Rene worked in a grocers shop there. Yes, what days, I wish I could travel in time and go back there now.
