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.

Ewe & Lamb, Leighton Buzzard - a Memory of Woburn.

I lived at the pub called the Ewe & Lamb (which I believe is a newspaper office now?) in 1944 with my Mum & Dad. The proprietor of the public house was my Great Uncle Arthur, who is now listed in the Kelly"s Directory; apparently he began his time there in 1936. I cannot recall my school there, I was nine at that time. Remember the cobblestone courtyard through the archway there. Market days farmer would go to the back. I DO remember helping dry wiping up glasses, after closing of course. Our home was in Elm Park, Hornchurch Essex. Such wonderful memories of my childhood in England. I came with my parents to Canada in 1946, but in spite of the war, have these exciting memories. My maiden name was Bennett.
