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.

Widnes Maternity Home - a Memory of Widnes.

I was born in Widnes Maternity Home in 1946. Not sure if that was the correct name. My parents lived on Boston Avenue in Runcorn and my grandparents on Taylor’s row. It was great finding this site. I’m going to look at the pictures of Widnes and just marvel at it.

My mother, me and my daughter were all born here. I loved my time spent here. It was definitely a home from home. The staff were fantastic! I wanted to go there for the birth of my son the following year but sadly it was closed down as a maternity home three weeks before he was born.
