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.

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 a little longer.

We will update this message as anything changes.

Crescis - a Memory of Ynysybwl.

Highlight of visiting grandparens every summer was the frequent visit to Cresci's Cafe to buy a quarter of sweets in paper cones and a cornet of the best icecream every made!! Usually served by Mary Cresci but I can still remember Mother Cresci as well, also Tommy, who was a contemporary of my mother, Beth Jones, Twyncelyn.

What a shame it closed down - it was Ynysybwl to me.

Same story all over the valleys. They held the community together - with the pit.

Jennifer Stamp (nee James)
