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.

Happy Childhood Memories - a Memory of Wokingham.

I have such happy memories of Lakeside California. My Dad worked there every season for a few years. That's him in this photo wearing the white trunks his name was Ron and he was entertainments manager. I can remember fishing on the lake, dinner in the dining room which had a rowing boat in the middle of the room and the dance floor in the ballroom. I also remember going on morning rambles in the woods with other campers led by my dad.

My grandad ,Harold Grover of The Bungalow Toutley worked at California .i think he must have done a bit of everything to keep the grounds tidy .I have a photograph of him when he was there and as we had been allocated a house in Evendons Lane which was in walking distance of California we used to go there and visit him when he was at work
