ABOUT US/CONTACT

I always used to get bored during my summer holidays, probably annoying my parents. At 14, they wanted me to learn a trade. They sent me to my cousin in Ilford and my uncle in Clapham to learn the Shoe Repairs trade.

A Glue Brush and broom where my tools at the time. At first the trade was hard; to learn the skill level needed was difficult for me to pick up. Eventually, I showed some sort of skill.

At 19, I began working for Timpson in Selfridges, again, I started at the beginning.

My role was to finish and polish shoes. I did this role for 9 1/2 years, moving on to Benching and Customer related roles. I think it would be fair to say, my skill level was finally achieved.

I spent 18 years at Timpson working myself up to Manager, managing some of their best Branches.

The dream of running my own Business came when an opportunity in Farringdon, presented itself.

We took the unit, set it up with all the Machinery and materials.

Our focus was on Customers leaving our store with a smile through, Craftsmanship, Quality Materials and Customer Service.

Unfortunately after two years, we were forced to close due to the Crossrail project.

Almost a year and a half later, we found our new location at 50 Great Portland Street.

Our Dedication to our Customers Remains the Same.
