Coronavirus: Thank you for the amazing support we have received from our customers during the last few months. Our office and factory are based in a rural area which has made it practical for us to remain open for business.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, coasters and placemats are still not available but we hope to offer these again soon.

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.

Penn View 1941 - a Memory of Wincanton.

I was born in Wincanton in 1941, at 55 Penn View. I went to Noth Street School and had a wonderful time there. Wish it still was...but that was my young days. I used to watch the horse raising from the back window of the house. I was told that the old man in the Churchyard got down off the block and walked the church every night at 2400 hrs. School...what a wonderful time. I was in Mrs Ladd's class then in Mrs John's class, then Mr Tilly. Mrs Simpson was head of girls, and Mr Chapley headmaster of the boys. I used to go down the playing field and fish off of the Bridge with
a bottle and a bit of string to catch minnows in the river Cale. What wonderful days ..
