New Range of Tea Towels Introduced

You asked for it and ITC has done it. We now have Northwood, Longueville, Riverview Tea Towels (as well as Greenwich and Lane Cove).

All you need to do is either email ITC or hit the Shop Now button on our Facebook Page.  But hurry as there are only very limited supplies of Riverview and Longueville and even more limited supplies of Northwood. If they sell out we can’t guarantee that we will be able to order any more before Christmas.

The good news is that you can buy Lane Cove and Greenwich Tea Towels at The Burns Bay Bookery

In relation to his alcohol consumption throughout the day, the male stated he had consumed approximately 10 glasses of wine. The male was submitted to a breath analysis which returned a reading of 0.174 grams of alcohol, equating to a high range prescribed concentration of alcohol.
