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.

Summer Holidays - a Memory of Windygates.

My granny lived in a bungalow along the Kennoway road. Every summer during the fifties was spent there. Fond memories are of walking down to the cross roads to buy fresh morning rolls and the Beano or Dandy. Later we would buy icecream cones from one of the icecream parlours, I think there were three.
We used to walk along the railway line (not the main line) and catch trout in the burn. One of the highlights of our holiday was to go to the links fairs at St. Andrews and Kirkaldy. There was a bench next to granny's house and old men with bonnets would sit and chat, to this day I think one of them was grandpa Broon! I'm nearly sixty but these memories of Windygates are still with me.
