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.

Memories of Tonypandy

My mother, Helen Wilson was born in Tonypandy in 1924. Her father was Charles Stuart Parnel Wilson. He went to Tonypandy to teach in a school there. Helens mother was Briget O'Sullivan Wilson. I am wanting to learn anything of their time there or hear even the slightest memory of what school this may have been, during that time. Thank you KH

I was born in Glyncornel Hospitla in 1948. I lived in Tonypandy till I was 14. I remember a faggot and peas shop next to Hathaways chip shop, it was called Maceys. It sold freshly cooked meats too. The lovely St George's Park. The mid where schools had their sports day, where we used to play after school (climbing over gate to get in). Tonypandy has changed for the worst.

Sometime between 1900 and 1940 Thomas Arthur Livingston taught in Tonypandy.  He had children, is there anyone out there who can provide a clue as to what happened to him, or a photo of the school with or without him.

Does anyone remember my great grandfather, Edward Stanley Carpenter? Does anyone know someone who remembers him as a lay preacher there towards the beginning of the twentieth century? I would love to hear the recollections. Caroline Scot.
