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.

Chipping Hill Infant School - a Memory of Witham.

My name is Janet (nee Smith) McGraw, I was born in Witham, Essex in the year 1942. I also went to Chipping Hill Infant School. I started school April 16th 1947, the day before my 5th birthday. I remember Ann Goodchild very well, I actually have a photograph of her as "The Fairy" in the Christmas play, with me standing beside her as "The Holly and the Ivy". I also went to the Church School. I left Witham in 1963, I've lived in several Countries and various States, now living in North Carolina, USA, for the past 32 years.
Chipping Hill Infant School is closing its doors this summer for ever, they will be moving to another location in Witham. However they are looking for former pupils to come forward to share their memories with the children, teachers and parents. So if you have some fond memories, stories, or photgraphs you would be willing to share , they would love to hear from you. I have a copy of the questionaire they sent out, so if anyone would like a copy, I'd be happy to send it on to them.
I would love to hear from anyone else who was born and raised in Witham. My sister Ann still lives in Witham and keeps me up to date on some of the news from the old town.

There was no Rickstones School in the 50's, just a road with that name.
