Home Office latest news:

Passports issued from 30 March 2019 will continue to be burgundy, but they will no longer include the words ‘European Union’ on the front cover.

There will be no difference for British citizens whether they are using a passport that includes the words European Union, or a passport that does not include the words European Union. Both designs will be equally valid for travel.

UK passports issued before the UK leaves the EU will remain valid travel documents. You do not have to replace a passport that meets your travel needs.

Our news:

You can get all your passports/visas etc done in our shop.

We also do International Driving Permit photos - and you can get the pics,  then walk one minute down Hickmott road and apply for your permit at the Post Office on Sharrowvale road!

Been unable to access this website for 3 months, mainly due to me fiddling around in the 'Admin' settings, pretending to be a web builder, and getting myself locked out.. that will show me eh?!!

Back in after much experimentation, but if there is ever a gap in this blog, see our Facebook or Twitter pages instead!

In future, untill we get a new website, please find us on Twitter of Facebook for more up to date info!

There's lots of reasons to visit us on Hickmott Road: a plethora of other lovely little independent shops, including:

'Nonnas' cafe and restaurant; 'Lash'; 'Guiseppe' (very reasonably priced hairdresser); 'Yes Orange' for handmade clothes and accessories; a vegan cafe which only opened 2 days ago; 'Amanda Jane' hairdresser; 'Tiarra' jewelry and accesory shop, 'The Delightfull Touch' a cafe with great ambience and cakes; 'Porter Brook Gallery' for paintings and antiques; 'Little Gem' for waxing, nails etc, 'Olivers' cafe; 'David James' jewellers, and 'Roneys' a famous butcher (does wicked hot roast sandwiches!).

No excuse now for not coming to visit us! And we also have the Sharrow Vale road on the corner of Hickmott, which hosts a lovely group of independent shops.

We will be open tomorrow (Sunday) from 12-4pm, coinciding with the brilliant 'Sharrowvale Christmas Market'. This is a great yearly event, with loads of stalls selling quality goods, and food.  Hickmott Road is on the left as you walk down Sharrowvale Road towards the Post office.
