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.

First Teaching Post At Marton Camp School - a Memory of Whitegate.

Hi Kids,
I taught at Marton Camp School having left Loughborough Training College in Sept 1958 until I left to work in Outward Bound Schools in December 1959. Sadly, I have not kept in touch with other teachers, apart from Ed Cartner and Liz (Dom. Sci. teacher) who married and now live in Plymouth. I was also friendly with Howell Jones, Jackie Peake, Peter Booth and Mr. Carrick who was the other teacher in my Dorm.
Pupils I remember, were a pretty girl called Dobson, Charlton whose sister was Assistant Matron, a Footballer called Johnson and Gordon Harrison, who had an unfortunate fall when camping in North Wales one weekend and was carried down Snowdon by a team of RM Commandos!
I now live in Guernsey, will be 80 next month, but still Ski and Climb mountains.

I hope someone will come up with some other names to jog my failing memory !

Alex Allan.
