Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

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.

Reading past memories of Walsh Manor brings back memories of mine. At about 1937 we moved in to the cottage at the manor as my grand parents part-ran the manor with a Mr Lindred. The manor then was a home for severely disabled and disfigured people from London hospitals. My father ran the farm my mother was head cook at (...Read full memory)

This certainly brings back some memories. I can remember my father plus a number of other people going to the Clock House Dairy in the High Street, to collect the milk, during the bad winter of 1963 when the snow prevented the milkman from delivering it. I would love to hear from anyone with whom I have subsequently lost touch, Evelyn Nicholson, nee Constable.

Although we have only lived in Crowborough for 31 years, we discovered through research that our cottage in Green Lane is one of the oldest. Does anyone have any photographs of Green Lane? We would be interested in seeing these.

I have posted a memory under the other place about Whincroft. Please ring 01892654892 if you want to talk about Whincroft days!

I have been researching my early schooldays and my first memory is of a sweeping staircase up to a landing where I was been held by matron whilst my mother seemingly abandoned me. She was unmarried (the horror) and at the time it was a girls' school that took a few boys under 7. As my mother could not have me at home, I (...Read full memory)

Rosemary and Antoinette (were you Toni?) picked up my earlier, not very helpful, query since I used my married name and Barbara which was'nt ever used at school! What about Sandy Heathcote, and Mhari Bruce? And Hilary and Jane? It would be fun to hear from anyone. Barbara

l too was a pupil at Walsh Manor, unfortunately my memory of the school was not such a happy one. After l left l also went to St Michael's in Uckfield, which wasn't much better, although l made some life-long friends there, who l still keep in contact with and see. It would be interesting to compare memories with others who also remember Walsh Manor at that time.

Is there anyone out there who remembers Whincroft School, or who was there c 1954 to 1961? I'd love to hear from them.

I was a pupil at Walsh Manor school about 1964 and was wondering if anyone has any pictures of the school or the history of the manor house. I loved being at the school as there was a farm attached where we used to go. The school itself was a lovely place to live and when I was there it was run by Mr and Mrs Hemmings. It (...Read full memory)
