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 Don't Remember Much - a Memory of Wingate.

My father was manager of the colliery in Wingate until late 1952. I went to Wingate Primary School in 1951. Other notable pupils, not in my year, were the novelist Barry Unsworth and Geoff Caygill who I met in Hull where he was teaching science.

I too went to Wingate Primary about the same time 51/52.I remember waving through the classroom window to my Dad who was the school caretaker.He played football for Wingate Wanderers for years,even though he only had one arm(lost in WW2).I have a treasured photo of him scoring a wonderful header in the snow.We lived opposite the Fir Tree pub,before moving to Station Town.
