Welcome!
Summer has arrived and, as always, we are pleased to welcome regular and new customers to our showroom, visitor centre and the T Café. The murmer of ‘industry in quiet places’ returns to Kilburn for another season.

In this newsletter, we are pleased to highlight one of our longest serving craftsmen, Mike Cole, who has semi-retired from the company after 50 years of ‘mouse’ work. Mike started here
when I was just a small boy and my father was running the company with my uncle John. In the 1970s, I was apprenticed to Mike and I will always be grateful to him for teaching me my trade. Now my son, Simon, is working here as well. The tradition of fine wood working that was started by my great grandfather, Robert Thompson, is kept alive not just through the family but also through highly skilled craftsmen, such as Mike, who pass on their know-how to the next generation. Long may it continue.  Ian Thompson Cartwright
