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.

Mr Mc Donald's Guest House - a Memory of Westgate on Sea.

I first went to Westgate in 1961 with my parents (I was born in 1956). My memories are of Mr McDonald's Guest House and the brass dinner gong in the hallway. Also memories of the cafe and Speedy Gonzales on the jukebox! The holidays were taken every summer for about 6 years.
I have photographs of me and my brother on the beach with Mickey Mouse which I will forward when I find them. Fond memories.

My dad Herbert Edward Pile (Ted) lived in Dunstan Ave Westgate as a boy. We spent our annual holidays staying with
Auntie Freda Sturgess in King Edward Road Birchington. Most of the family were in the local brass band.
