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.

Woking County School For Girls - a Memory of Woking.

This is a picture of the main entrance gates of Woking County School for Girls, known as the Girls' Grammar School, at the corner of East Hill and Old Woking Road. Girls were never permitted to use these gates: alternative means of access were to the right and left of the gates shown in this pic. The bus-stop that pupils used to travel into Woking was immediately opposite this entrance, probably just about where the photographer would have been standing when this photo was taken.

I remember the school being built and how excited we became as it neared completion. I was in the sixth form when we moved from the old army huts, and we had spent weeks packing up the library ready for its move. The new library was breathtaking, spacious, light and airy. The rest of the school was equally impressive, especially after spending the previous five years in Nissen huts, which often meant getting wet moving from one classroom to the next.
As a member of the Sixth Form we were housed on the upper floor, close to the library. I remember small seminar rooms, warm and cosy, but interlinked. If they were in use it meant a trip down the stairs, a stroll along the corridor, then up the next staircase to access the rest of the floor.
I spent only a few months in this "palace" but have good memories.
