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.

Gladstone Road, Wimbledon 1967 - a Memory of Wimbledon.

I hope someone can help me on this, I worked in a garage just off the Broadway in Gladstone Road in 1967, quite a large garage which sold cars etc, but for the life of me I cannot remember the name of it. I do remember that it had a ramp to the side of it going up to the roof of the building and it also had an entrance in Russel Road and had a fuel pump located there, if someone could help me on this I would be most grateful.

Hi David
I went to st Mary's school in Russel Road, the garage you refer to was a Vauxhall and Bedford dealership, i can't recall the name. I remember it was still there in the 1950s it became a Weatherspoon pub and i believe it is the largest pub in the group.
