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.

More about this scene


Caption for Wordsley, High Street C1965: The shop next to the post office used to belong to E C Whitney, a manufacturer of clerical clothing such as cassocks, surplices and stoles. Most churches in Britain were supplied by Whitney's in the early 20th century, and there was also a sizeable export market. The property is occupied by an undertaker's today, and the post office is now a dental centre.

The large building on the right is the Community Centre, built as an art school to improve the standards of design which in the 19th century was very poor, particularly in the glass industry.
