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.

William - a Memory of Wingate.

My memory of Wingate is of my dad who passed away 10 years ago, he talked about the village when he was a lad. If anyone knows of him or has any history please e-mail me. My dad was William Johnstone, his dad John or Robert Johstone was killed down Wingate pit in 1936.

Hi, my great grandfather was John Robert Johnstone! He was killed in a pit accident but in 1938 my grandmother had a brother called William I believe would love to know if this is the same family!
