Why Settle for Anything Less? We’ve all said that to ourselves on the odd occasion, I know I do when buying my new knitwear for the season – there’s only one place to look really! And, I’m sure this question was recently asked by Robbie Williams (or his “in-the-know stylist”) as he seems to be sporting one of our Polo Shirts in his latest video for “Shame“. We know Robbie is a lover of all things British, and can only salute him on this latest style choice!

This weekend the John Smedley Mill is playing host to the Florence Nightingale Heritage weekend. A great weekend of family fun will be taking part on the John Smedley football pitch, not forgetting the Mill Sale, so lots going on up here.
Along with the design team we’ve been busy putting together a window for the event. It shows the type of display most often used in shop-fronts or at trade exhibitions in the late Victorian/Edwardian Era. These garments were made by the craftsmen and women, here at Lea Mills during Florence Nightingale’s long lifetime and have not been on display for over 25 years.
