Sorry about the images of the best craft toys, I had already uploaded them before realising they needed rotating!!

Whilst we were putting out our new range of Galt best craft toys, which are located at the rear of the toy shop, we noticed that Galt had been established since 1836 so doing a little more research on the company we discovered that James Galt & Co. Ltd. has been established for over 180 years. James Galt himself was born at Stewarton in Ayrshire and then set up as an educational stockist in Manchester in 1836.
In the 1850s the company expanded into printing and publishing and in 1957 the company moved from Manchester to Cheadle in Cheshire. In 1961 the Galt Toys division was formed and so there is a lot of history for Galt.

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.
