COVID-19 crisis

Posted by

We are currently accepting orders.

We are operating in a safe environment with no more than one person in the office or warehouse at a time. We are not a big company so we can do this easily.

During the UK's crisis we cannot guarantee to process your order in our usual prompt fashion. Whilst we are not currently banned from our workplace, because we cannot carry out our work from home, we will not be coming into work every day in order to minimise our time away from our homes. This means that we will accrue orders and then process them and despatch them.

You will get a notification when goods are despatched. Once they have been despatched we can no longer promise that overnight orders will arrive the next day, as our couriers and Royal Mail may have their own issues regarding staffing levels and logistics. So you may wish to select the lower cost shipping option.

If our situation changes because of government guidance or rules, we will update this page.

We wish all our customers the best during this time. Please keep yourselves safe and well.
