Mail Order Deliveries

Over the past few weeks we have been working hard to make sure that our staff are able to operate within a safe environment and that our customers’ orders can start to go out safely. We are currently working through the orders we have taken during the lockdown period, whilst adhering to the parcel limitations that have been imposed by our courier. Current estimated delivery times are around 3-4 weeks from time of order and deliveries will be sent out in strict order rotation. Please bear with us whilst we adapt to new ways of working and thank you once again for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
