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.

My sisters, Anne and Mary, and I lived at the Vicarage, 175 Linacre Lane on the corner of Monfa Road. The church was along Monfa Road.

Does anyone have any memory of my grandparents, Philip and Margaret Harrington, who lived at No.38? She died 1923, he in 1929.

I am researching my family, the Mumerys, who lived at 24 Elm Road and owned a bakers which was bombed out in the Blitz on Bridge Road. If anyone could tell me anything else about them I would be really grateful. My family is over from new Zealand at Christmas, and I'm going to take them round the old family (...Read full memory)

I was born 16 Violet Road in 1960 and lived there up until 1970 when we moved up to Church Road (dead posh). As a kid I played on the 'Matchy' where all my mates learnt how climb and on the 'Rella' where the kids from Lily Road had a football pitch in between the two railway lines that ran to the docks. Happy days when (...Read full memory)

My father, William Thomas 'Tom' Williams, was born at 9 Parmerston Drive on 23 Mar 1902 to Catherine Miriam Johnstone/Johnson and John Williams.

I came to Bridge Road when I was 6 months old with my mum and dad.  Ormes was the corner shop, there was also a grocers next door (I think). On  a block the other way I remember Cruickshanks, I remember it was a joy going into his shop. Also next door but one to me was the dentist (Mr Nair). I have lots of really good (...Read full memory)
