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.

All My Yesterdays. - a Memory of Corringham.

The road branching to the left is Lampits Hill Avenue. The telephone box there used to be used by the local Bobbies in order to check in with their sergeant back at the station.
I had a classmate called Russell who's dad was a chimney sweep. Russell was with a friend one afternoon when he saw the Bobby in the phone box making a call, bike leaning against the box. Without a moments hesitation Russell took the bike and rode off with his friend on the crossbar. This particular Bobby was nicknamed Noddy, very unoriginal. He did not panic at all but waited for a while. It paid off because Russell and his partner in crime appeared from the public footpath opposite. They dropped the bike and ran. No doubt Noddy would have dealt with this but it was always done with a ticking off in those days.
