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.

Eighton Lodge - a Memory of Windy Nook.

Hello does anyone remember Eighton Lodge, now a care home for the elderly, as a care home for unmarried mothers? I was placed here at the age of 16 years of age in 1982 until my 17th bithday when I gave birth to my daughter on that very day. I would appreciate any information, on the history and when it finally closed. Thank you for reading this.

I was there in late 76. I have dreadful memories of that place.

I remember it being open and I took a young girl there on a visit as part of my job in 1975. I don't know when it closed

I spent three months at Eighton Lodge in 1975, I was one of the unlucky sad ones who had to have my daughter adopted, but she has now found me and we hope to meet soon
