Springslade Lodge tea rooms, run by the Le Page family in Cannock, has been there for 20 years – and is well know for its large teapot-shaped sign hanging outside.

Owner Kay Le Page said it was made specifically so walkers and passers-by could know they could stop for a cup of tea.

And the family – she runs the tea room with husband Richard and daughter Lucy – were devastated when it was taken for the second time this September.

It was previously stolen in 2013 and had to be replaced.

Kay said: “A company called Bri-Stor in Hixon, one of the workers is a customer and wanted to replace the sign free of charge which was amazing. So Victoria and Jake from Bri-Stor came to see us and we gave them a cup of tea.”
