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.

St Johns - a Memory of Woodford Bridge.

My memories of St Johns are that of being slippers every night before bed but I would like to talk to anyone who was there 1955 to 1959. We came from Paddingtion London and I suffered from hearing problems I wait to hear from anyone who remembers me.

G'day John. I have mixed memories of 'St John's', mainly good, but some instances of bullying. My friends were Pat Malloy and Charles Milnes. Pat was the only boy in the school wearing leg-irons, so he would have stood out somewhat. I have written several blogs to Bernard Wilson, on this site and several others on the 'Francis Frith' site. Hopefully, I don't start repeating myself. Different things make each of us angry, or just bewildered. One day, I had to go to my local clinic where I lived, for dental work. I had tw of God's Gestapo as escorts. Once business was concluded, I asked if we could go to my home ( which was no more then 200 yards away ). My request was denied. At 10, ones concept of 'rules' is somewhat limited. Please read my other offerings and enjoy the memories good, or bad, they may invoke.
Regards, Chris Francis.
