Bored Cork Stoppers

Hello again everybody,
I now have my lathe set up and would like to start by making(hopefully) cork bottle stoppers, but am having an awful job finding a local supplier in the UK. Can anyone help, please. I'm living in co durham

No. Corks that are to be applied to a dowel on the end of a bottle stopper, that I would like to make, to get my wood turning experiences of the ground
