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.

Relative - a Memory of West View.

I'm looking for my great great grandad Jonas Mattison. He owned or ran the pub which I believed to be by the docks water front on the headland of Hartlepool, called something like Blue or Bells ?? He had 5 children in total and sadly his wife died by the 1930's.

Hi Angela
Could the pub be The Blue Bell, 44 Low St, Sunderland? This pub was run by various Mattisons (also my relatives) at various times.
Best wishes
Jane
