Silly Billy’s Toy Shop have started a YouTube Channel

It is a work in progress and the author of this blog (Robert A Williams) does not claim to be very versed in Video and is, in fact, just starting learning. However, the incredible power of modern technology means that the ability to shoot relatively good quality video is pretty much accessible to all. You can view the Youtube Channel via the button below and we would really love it if you would subscribe.

Hebden Bridge Duck Race 2017 – New Products

Hebden Bridge Duck Race 2017

New Products in the Shop for Easter Holidays

Soon Hebden Bridge Duck Race 2017 will be upon us. Last year’s Hebden Bridge Duck Race was well attended although not as well as the Hebden Bridge Duck race of 2015. This was due to the disaster that befell Hebden Bridge on Boxing Day 2o16.

This year we are hoping the Hebden Bridge Duck Race will be a huge event with hopefully even more people attending than there were in 2015. Again because of Bill’s love of Chelsea FC we are supporting the Blue Team in the business Duck Race challenge, the author’s (Robert A Williams) feeling though is that the Red Team, supported by Cafe Solo, Homely at Hebden, and others will triumph.
