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.

Flowers And Veg At Gower's Queens Road. - a Memory of Hastings.

My father, Albert Victor Catt, known as Vic, worked for Mr Gower for many years either side of WW2. My father had a curvature of the spine which prevented him for joining the forces so he was employed to produce food during the war years. For a short period during the war he was employed to repair houses damaged by bombing in the Romney Marsh area. Otherwise he worked on the field at St Helen's Wood until his health and age prevented him from continuing. I used to visit him at around lunchtime sometimes bringing tea in a flask, but I really came to learn how to ride his bicycle along the rough roads close to Bodle's Pig Farm.
