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.

I Have Fond Memories Of Brookfield School, Wigton. - a Memory of Wigton.

I was a foreign exchange student at Brookfield School in 1984-85. Coming from Mexico I found the place to be a  completely different planet from what I was used to at home. I must say that year was one of the happiest and most exciting in my whole life. I am now 40.  I was there when the school was taken over by another administration.  Later I learned that it had disappeared due to a fire. I have to mention my good friend Mr Trevor Green the headmaster. He made me feel at home thousands of miles away from my home country. I will never forget Mrs Barbara Rowe (maths), Mr John Woodcock (PE), and Mrs Celia Howarth (French, Italian). To all of them my deepest gratitude for all I learned. We would walk to Wigton on dark rainy afternoons, to the sweet shop and back.  Friends meeting on Sundays was a new experience even though I was a Catholic.
I will never forget the time spent there, the memories live in my heart and will never fade.
