Coronavirus: Thank you for the amazing support we have received from our customers during the last few months. Our office and factory are based in a rural area which has made it practical for us to remain open for business.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, coasters and placemats are still not available but we hope to offer these again soon.

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.

Caption for Worcester, The Cathedral Ferry 1906: The ferry originated for the use of monks from the priory, to cross to their farmland on the west bank. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries the operation of the ferry passed to the Dean and Chapter of the cathedral. It lapsed in the 1950s but has since been successfully revived as a summer-only service. Edward Elgar used it regularly as a boy, crossing from his home in Worcester to his school at Lower Wick. This picture appears to show King's School pupils using it. Behind it is the Watergate, the last surviving city gate, built in 1378.

Do you remember the Gaumont Junior Club? For a few pennies on a Saturday morning, hundreds of local kids watched a cartoon, a newsreel, an information picture and a main feature...PLUS, there was community singing with John Bee on the mighty Wurlitzer organ. I remember that during the war, we all stood while (...Read full memory)
