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.

My Life On Weston Green - a Memory of Weston Green.

I was born in Weston Green, my parents having lived at Maisonette, Weston Green. My grandfather Charles Dobson was the local baker and lived on the green in the house on its own called The Lodge which was where the cricket was played. I used to watch it from my grandmother's back yard. She had ducks and hens and used to hire out horses to people, but I was not born at that time, I only remember the ducks etc. My great-grandfather built all of the Jubilee Villas on Weston Green Road opposite the cricket pitch. The bake-house was on the other side of the road and my grandfather's sister used to run the Greyhound pub with her husband, Frank Walthew.
