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.

Elliott Street - a Memory of Widnes.

I was born at the maternity home high field road 1939
Lived in Elliott Street
As children we used to go up to
Pex Hill anyone remember that
I used to ride across the river with my Dad on the transporter and was scared it would drop in, but Dad said don't worry there is cork underneath it will float

I too was born at Maternity Home-Highfield Road in December 1941. The building is now Highfield Nursery Day School.
