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.

Working At The Victoria - a Memory of Woking.

I was ophthalmic house officer at St Peter's (Chertsey) and "Woking "Vic" in 1966. Miss Iris Kane was the Consultant. She worked hard and taught me a lot. I was based at St Peter's and each week had to drive to the "Vic" four times for pre-operative checks on the patients, the operating session, a post operative check and one clinic. The Hospital was small, but friendly. Towards the end of my job, my wife became pregnant; our first child was born just after I started a new job. The staff on the Children's Ward gave me a redundant rocking horse. I repainted the structure and bought a new head. Our firstborn, and subsequent children loved it. It is still in my house.
