A word from our customers

We are always grateful and proud to hear back from you about what you think of our products or the service you have experienced. Here is what just a couple of you have told us. Read more testimonials.

I have just viewed many beautiful online pictures of old Rochdale. My memories only go back to the 1960's when I started work there but my mother shared her memories of days back to the 1920's or so. What a town to be proud of in the old days and what proud people Rochdalians were. I wish the same could be said of the town nowadays. So sad what has happened. Thank you so much for the marvellous pictures that have both made me smile and brought a tear or two. God bless you.

I must say thank you for excellent service from your company. The jigsaw I ordered last friday was delivered on Monday in time for my father-in-law's birthday today. He is delighted with it. Really exceptional service! Kind regards April Startup (from Hong Kong)

I am just writing to say how very please I was to receive my order this morning. 'Glorious Britian' (hardback) and Lincolnshire Living Memories (paperback) are to be given as a Christmas present to my stepfather and I'm sure he will be absolutely delighted. In particular the Glorious Britian book is superb - I just hope it won't look 'dog eared' by the time he receives it as it is very tempting to sit and read it myself before I hand it over! Excellent value for money, I will certainly recommend your website to friends and family
