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.

Former Pupil Seeking Classmates - a Memory of Winnersh.

I am Barry Newboult, I attended the RMNS from 1958 to 1962, and was assigned to Frobisher House.
I left early to complete my education at Exeter Technical College.
I would very much like to reconnect with anyone from the school who wishes to do so.

My memories of the school are mixed, at the time I hated being there, but only later did I realise how beneficial my stay there had been, and what opportunities I had been presented with. I would particularly wish to thank the benevolent fund administrators who provided for my needs during my stay, and would like to hear from them if they are still contactable. In particular I would like to hear from Mr Geogh, the teacher who helped me most in my darkest days, to let him know that I made out ok and had a successful career in engineering. His kindness is my fondest memory.
Is it possible to contact Herr Schiller? (we did not use first names in those days). I always considered him to be my friend.

I am now happily retired and living comfortably in my home in Hythe bordering on the New forest. I hope I will hear from my friends soon, a welcome awaits them here.

My fondest wishes to everyone,

Barry Newboult
